- 4.3 Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Monitor circulation, possible shock treatment.

Possibly oxygen respiration treatment

Monitoring or correction of vital functions.

At the first sign of change in mental status, oxygen should be administered.

The first step in the management of systemic toxic reactions, as well as underventilation or apnea due to

unintentional subarachnoid injection of drug solution, consists of immediate attention to the establishment

and maintenance of a patent airway and effective assisted or controlled ventilation with 100% oxygen with a

delivery system capable of permitting immediate positive airway pressure by mask. Circulation should be

assisted as necessary. This may prevent convulsions if they have not already occurred.

If necessary, use drugs to control convulsions. Intravenous barbiturates, anticonvulsant agents, or muscle

relaxants should only be administered by those familiar with their use. Immediately after the institution of

these ventilatory measures, the adequacy of the circulation should be evaluated. Supportive treatment of

circulatory depression may require administration of intravenous fluids, and, when appropriate, a

vasopressor dictated by the clinical situation (such as ephedrine or epinephrine to enhance myocardial

contractile force).

If difficulty is encountered in the maintenance of a patent airway or if prolonged ventilatory support (assisted

or controlled) is indicated, endotracheal intubation, employing drugs and techniques familiar to the clinician,

may be indicated after initial administration of oxygen by mask.
