RESUMO

Self-poisoning is a major health problem in Trinidad. The changing pattern of self-poisoning between 1972 and 1982 was studied. Paraquat poisoning which was rare in 1972 reached epidemic proportions in 1982. The population at risk were young East Indians living in rural areas. In spite of the high morbidity and mortality associated with paraquat poisoning, this toxic herbicide is still easily available over the counter. Enforced legislation to control the sale of paraquat is urgently needed. (AU)

RESUMO

From 1958-1962, 975 children under 9 years of age (an average of 195 per year) were admitted to the Pediatric Unit of Kingston Public Hospital because of an accident which had happened at home. This represented 7 percent of total admissions. Ingestion of noxious substances was the most common accident - an average of 88 children per year falling into this category and of those 57 had taken kerosene oil. The annual average for burns, foreign bodies and trauma was 54, 36 and 17 respectively. The causes of poisoning were analysed in detail and some features of the organo-phosphorous group, chenopodium, the phenothiazide group and the Jamaican physic nut discussed (AU)
