In infants under 6 months of age, paracetamol overdose is usually due to dose confusion by caretakers. Recently, liquid formulations of this drug have been commercialized in larger,ml bottles. The syringe to measure the syrup in these new formulations is also bigger 5 cc versus 1. We present six cases of 2—4-month-old infants mistakenly given an overdose of paracetamol, each from this new ml formulation.

These patients are especially susceptible to poisoning because of liver immaturity and require more aggressive management. To prevent this kind of poisoning, correct and clear information must be given to caregivers about drug dosage. ISSN: Paracetamol poisoning in infants aged less than six months: Dosage errors.

Objectives: To evaluate 5 diagnostic-therapeutic strategies for suspected acute paracetamol poisoning in terms of cost-effectiveness in a tertiary university hospital with an active, validated poisoning surveillance program SAT-HULP. Material and methods: Cost-effectiveness analysis of the 5 diagnostic-therapeutic alternatives considered when attending patients with suspected paracetamol poisoning. The alternatives were chosen by means of a decision tree. Deterministic and probabilistic sensitivity analyses were performed. Results: The approaches that were most cost-effective were those guided by reported doses and nomograms. Conclusion: Treating according to nomogram was the most efficient diagnostic-therapeutic approach to treating paracetamol poisoning in our hospital.
