Cyanide Poisoning Prognosis
It is difficult to determine prognosis with cyanide exposure, but reliable predictors of outcome are how sick the patient was when first brought to the hospital, and how quickly he or she was brought to the hospital. If timely medical attention is given and the patient is still awake and talking, the prognosis is usually very good. There is a chance that delayed neurological problems may develop.
