Thanks for the resource. I checked out the website, National Guard Health Affairs, and found it has some good information. Among the poisoned symptoms you list are some that might not necessarily be considered to be from toxicity, such as unusual giddiness. Agitation, headache, confusion, vomiting all more common, yes?
Good info on what not to do if poisoned. Not inducing vomiting a good idea because some poisons will damage coming back up. Better to let professionals address it or, if you can’t get to professionals and life is threatened, call a health center, tell them what kind of poison was taken and follow their instructions to the letter.
Also very good that you remind people to take care of themselves too. If something with poisonous fumes is present,it could present a health hazard to the person attempting to help the one with poisoned symptoms.
For a poison emergency in the U.S. call 1-800-222-1222
