Cyanide Poisoning Follow-up
If the patient of cyanide poisoning is sent home, it is recommended to be reexamined within 24 hours to assure that nothing more serious develops during this time. If the patient is admitted to the hospital, when he or she leaves, individualized instructions will be given regarding follow-up.
Usually, it is recommended that the patient follow-up with a neurologist or neuropsychiatrist (doctors who specialize in the mind, brain, and nerves) to monitor for potential delayed-onset problems with the brain or nervous system.
