:: Leading Emergency Response and Medical Organizations Unite to Improve Recognition and Treatment of Cyanide Poisoning

Cyanide is a widely used and valuable industrial chemical. According to the World Health Organization, over one million tons of cyanide (about 80 percent of the annual production of cyanide compounds) is used in the chemical industry for production of organic chemical such as nylon and acrylics, in electroplating, metal processing, and photographic applications.

Recognizing that limited awareness of these and other sources of cyanide poisoning pose a risk to the health and safety of communities across the county, leading fire, medical and industry organizations announced today the formation of the Cyanide Poisoning Treatment Coalition (CPTC), a national non-profit organization seeking to foster a rational approach to the diagnosis and treatment of cyanide poisoning through increased research, advocacy and education. The Coalition has also launched an educational Website, www.cyanidepoisoning.org.
