[Activated charcoal as first-choice therapy in poisoning].
Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd. 1997 Apr 05; 141(14):675-7.NT

Abstract

In gastrointestinal detoxication, three methods are possible: ipecac induced emesis, gastric lavage and administration of activated charcoal. The method of treatment predominantly used in the Netherlands is gastric lavage in combination with activated charcoal. Published evidence suggests that activated charcoal not preceded by gastric emptying is preferred. Additional advantages of using activated charcoal alone as the method of choice for gastrointestinal decontamination are patient friendliness, low cost and time saving because quick intervention by general practitioners is possible.
