Sound to me like that might be a bit old school. I suppose its better to have it sit in your stomach and absorb into your blood while waiting to have it pumped?

The aspiration sounds a lot better to me but I appreciate the interest.

Actually it will do more damage than good. I think that milk is supposed to help.

Re: Medical Question or Common Sense

as James posted charcoal will attach itself to the poison and will be able to be pumped or expelled. It will not be absorbed into your blood. That is why all EMS(BLS or ALS) carry some sort of suspension of charcoal.

and a shoehorn.

My wife is an NR yet I refuse to ask her...She'd probably tease me.

One time my dog got into a bucket of mysterious clear liquid at my parents house. I though it was water and about 2 miles down the road he had about a 6" diameter projectile vomit right in the cab of the truck. I was worried so I called my dad and he tells me its peroxide and water. When I get home I call that animal help line and the guy on the other end tells me "I just so happens your in luck". I didn't find it the least bit humorous until he tells me thats what they use to induce vomiting in dogs and he would be just fine.

I find it funny now but cleaning that much puke from the cab of my truck still bothers me.

He's a meat head. He didn't even whine, just blaaaaat.

A puking dog and a screaming kid in the cab of a truck moving down the road a 60 mph. I had all I could do to maintain my composure. I could have been right there with him.
