Section Ii Care For An Overdose Patient

NOTE: This section provides instructions and guidance to care for an overdose patient. It is also closely related to Section I, Identify a Suspected Substance Abuser. You should be well familiar with the categories, signs, and symptoms of commonly abused substances. You should look for signs (for example, spoons, lamps, or pipes) that will identify the substance. Examining the patient will give further clues of the agent used. Before beginning care for the patient, you must obtain the patient's history.
