Suicidal, homicidal/criminal, and unintentional poisonings are the most frequent types. OP insecticides are widely available and could be abused for suicidal purposes. Supportive measures, prompt gastrointestinal (GI) decontamination, extracorporeal techniques of toxin elimination, and antidote delivery form the basis of treatment. Establishing suitable regulations, including new guidelines and updates to current treatment protocols, counseling and educating the public about the dangers of poisoning and the safe use and storage of chemicals.
