Handling After Drinking Toilet Or Floor Cleaning Fluid?
Dear kind hearted doctor. I want to ask my wife to accidentally drink cleaning fluid and swallowed quite a lot. Well, don’t handle anything just drinking water. Because the position is late and I’m working. His wife’s stomach feels sore and twists. Just in the afternoon I bought milk bear. And in the afternoon, I can only see a doctor on medicine, the doctor said his intestines burned. And the doctor said if the medicine has finished stomach pain, I will immediately go to the hospital. I want to ask if you want to deal with anything. Whether the intestines that are burned can return I am afraid. How to cure it Mkasi
Hello Dedi, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
The case of drinking liquid can cause a variety of conditions in the gastrointestinal tract, ranging from irritation of the esophagus to the intestine, or it can also be very severe if causing severe injury to the gastrointestinal tract to cause heavy bleeding.
The best initial action if this happens is to vomit the accidentally drained liquid, but do not deliberately cause this gag reflex with drugs because it can aggravate the situation.
However, seeing your wife's condition, it is highly recommended that you immediately take her to the nearest hospital emergency room while taking medication that has been given by a doctor to ascertain whether your wife's condition is okay or not. In the ER the doctor will first check the condition of your wife and then determine what actions should be done. Your doctor may suggest the use of a gastric tube (OGT or NGT) to help determine if there is bleeding in your wife's digestive tract and to help clean up any remaining fluid (for example, gastric lavage if needed). Henceforth, the emergency room doctor will consult your wife's condition to a specialist in internal medicine to get the most appropriate treatment about her condition when taken to the emergency room.
Regarding whether the intestine can recover completely or not, all depends on the level of damage that occurs in your wife's intestines. But in general, scar tissue will occur in the digestive tract affected by the fluid, whether it can cause interference or not in the future, all back again to the severity of the wound that occurs.
I hope this helps.
