Accidental poisoning in children
Accidents, burns, drownings, and poisonings are the four most frequent causes of death among children. They far exceed the frequency of death from any of childhood's infectious diseases. With reasonable care, death from poisoning is probably the most amenable to prevention. Accidental poisoning, mainly in preschool children, is discussed from the standpoints of the major toxic hazards found around the usual home, their nature, incidence, location, and prevention.
