Near-fatal intoxication by 1, 1, 1-trichloroethane.

Abstract

This report describes a case of near-fatal intoxication following accidental exposure to 1, 1, 1-trichloroethane in a child. This solvent, generally safe, is widely used to 1, 1, 1-trichloroethane in a child. This solvent, generally safe, is widely used in industrial and domestic preparations. Exposure to high levels of vapor can result in respiratory depression and/or fatal dysrhythmias. Treatment is generally supportive. Ventilation is maintained to enhance respiratory excretion.
