Historically, the PCC recommended the use of ipecac syrup prior to referral to the ED, especially if the victim was at home, to start the gastric emptying process as early as possible. Follow-up telephone calls by the PCC were then part of the protocol to gauge patient progress and outcome. The use of ipecac-induced emesis in the management of poisoned patients, however, as a gastric emptying technique has declined significantly. Despite its reliable ability to induce vomiting, the treatment modality has shown limited effectiveness in preventing drug absorption, particularly when given more than 30 to 90 minutes following ingestion of a toxic substance.
