Each year, over 50,000 calls are received by the Utah Poison Control Center. More than 60% of the exposures involve children less than six years of age.
In 2010, 94% of all poisonings occurred in the home. Fortunately 79% were managed on site with telephone follow-up. Therefore, it is critical to safeguard the home environment. The Utah Poison Control Center reminds everyone to make poisoning prevention a year round responsibility.
The top three poison categories in children involve:
(1). Cosmetics and personal care products;
(2). Household cleaning products;
(3). Pain killers such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen.
The top three poison categories in adults involve:
(1). Pain killers including narcotics and over-the-counter analgesics;
(2). Sedatives (drugs to reduce anxiety) and hypnotics (sleep aids);
