Brief Description:

We can find them in almost any home - a variety of both prescription and over the counter medications. According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers (2000), toxic drug exposure in toddlers is high with over 1 million cases reported in children under the age of 6 years, and 40% of all exposures occurring in patients under the age of 2 years. There are a number of medications capable of killing a 10 kg toddler with just 1-2 standard doses!

By participating in this webinar, the paramedic should be able to:

- Discuss the theory behind "One Pill can Kill"

- Identify the eleven classes of medications which can kill a toddler with one or two standard doses

- Describe the typical presentations, initial stabilization, and treatment of these ingestion
