USE

The EMERGENCY POISON TREATMENT of choice for cases of acute toxic ingestion. Each year, 3,000,000-6,000,000 poison exposures occur in the United States. Eighty percent (80%) of these exposures involve healthy, active children under the age of 5 years. Therefore, immediate and effective poison treatment procedures should be at hand in all hospitals and emergency care facilities. Liqui-Char and Syrup of Ipecac are the prime agents of the treatment process.

Description

The product is a mixture of Activated Charcoal, Sorbitol, and water with a unique preservative system. Activated charcoal is a fine black, odorless and tasteless powder which has been treated by various agents to enhance its adsorptive powers. The treatment is referred to as activation; the agents remove substances previously adsorbed on the charcoal, and in some instances, break down the granules of carbon into smaller ones having a greater total surface area, thus a greater number of adsorption sites on the charcoal molecule. Sorbitol reduces the gritty sensation associated with activated charcoal, imparts a sweet taste which enhances patient compliance and may produce a cathartic effect.
