Treatment of Aspirin Overdose

The patient should be brought to the hospital as soon as the poisoning is assessed. The health care personel will immediately check the pulse, temperature, breathing rate and blood pressure of the patient. Certain laboratory examination such as arterial blood gas test will be conducted.

The most common initial treatment is gastric decontamination. This is done by introducing activated charcoal in the body. Activated charcoal adsorbs the aspirin in the gastrointestinal tract. The patient's status will be monitored from time to time. Liver function, kidney function, urinalysis, complete blood count, salicylate and sugar levels are checked and assessed.
