This form was developed in the course of retrospective research, and can be used either for telephone emergency calls or as a part of the clinical file. Through the elaboration of the compiled forms a strict cooperation between the assisting services and the Specialized Toxicology Centre may allow for better preventive and therapeutic measures.
