ACEP Toxicology Antidote Mobile App
The Antidote app is a succinct resource designed for quick access to indications and dosing regimens for a variety of medications and antidotes used for common poisonings encountered by emergency care providers. It was created by the Toxicology Section and funded by an ACEP Section Grant. The app is equipped with a search function that allows you to search for specific antidotes by entering a variety of key words (for example, type in bb and several possible antidotes for beta blocker poisoning will come up). Alternatively, you can search for individual antidotes or scroll through an alphabetized list. It also allows you to call the Poison Control center with the click of a button.
Download the app for free on your iOS and Android devices.
