Medicine for mushroom poisoning must be available: DAV 3:13 PM,3/26/2014
The administration has received a report from Bach Mai Hospital in Hanoi about the increasing number of mushroom poisoning cases with insufficient treatment, said Nguyen Tat Dat, DAV deputy head.
The administration has asked the hospital to stockpile necessary medicines.
The Poison Control Center received 14 patients suffering from acute mushroom poisoning from Tuyen Quang and Thai Nguyen provinces in the North since March 14, said Do Doan Loi, deputy of Bach Mai Hospital.
Three died from poisoning and 10 are in critical condition with serious damage to the liver and digestive system after a series of blood filtration treatments.
The hospital contacted other hospitals including Viet Duc Hospital, 108 and 103 hospitals in search for liver donors. The children will have top priority for transplants.
Most patients are of ethnic minority in remote villages.
Organizations and volunteers will pass out informational leaflets to these people living without radio or television, said Dr. Pham Due, director of the Poison Control Center.
