Activated charcoal is a form of carbon that has numerous pores that increase the surface area. Activated charcoal can be a useful and potentially life-saving component of successful decontamination for the poisoned patient, as the charcoal can absorb toxins and help increase excretion and decrease absorption by the patient.
In this course, we will explore safe and effective use of activated charcoal based on the toxicant, patient factors and time frame.
Small practice veterinarians and veterinary technicians will benefit from this 50-minute course presented by the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center.
This live webinar was RACE-Approved and was good for one hour of free CE for veterinary and veterinary technicians. It meets the requirements of RACE hours of continuing education credit for veterinary technicians in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB’s RACE approval.
