Are there alternative treatments for industrial waste poisoning?

The primary treatment for industrial waste poisoning is emergency attention, support, and an antidote if one is available. Because the federal government oversees the medical management of industrial chemicals and accidents, treatment plans are outlined and followed by all medical personnel attending to people who have been affected. Once stabilized and symptoms go away, the person may need to seek follow-up care with their doctor to ensure recovery. Someone with industrial waste poisoning should rest, avoid drinking alcoholic beverages or using tobacco products for up to 72 hours after the incident.
