A 14-year-old male student closes the door alone in his room and calls his grieving grandmother on the phone. After that, I took 40 pills to kill myself.
Children’s Hospital 2, Ho Chi Minh City, said that it had just received a critical case from taking 40 paracetamol tablets. The patient is NNL (born in 2008), residing in District 3, Ho Chi Minh City.
According to the family’s share with the doctor, L. has normal psychological expression. A few days ago, L. was still attending a party with relatives. However, at this time, my parents are busy on a business trip.
Three hours before entering the hospital, L. closed the door alone in the house. After that, I called my grandmother, lamented, so I took 40 500 mg paracetamol tablets. Detected in time, relatives took L. to the emergency at Children’s Hospital 2, Ho Chi Minh City.
At that time, I was a bit tired, lethargic, did not fall into a coma. Emergency department doctors immediately rinsed the stomach, trying to save and save the boy’s life. The patient was transferred to the Department of General Internal Medicine and continued to be monitored. However, liver function is affected.
From the above case, Children’s Hospital 2 warned that when you arbitrarily use paracetamol overdose and do not control the doctor, there will be dangerous consequences. Drugs can directly affect the liver, even the life of the child.
In fact, during a prolonged period of social distancing, young children have had to study and play in an extremely limited environment. That is part of the reason why this group of subjects is psychologically affected, which can easily lead to impulsive actions.
Therefore, parents and relatives should take time to care, share and approach their children’s secret problems in learning as well as social issues.
