Follow-up

Further Inpatient Care

Base admission decisions on patient's signs and symptoms.

Asymptomatic patients without signs of anticholinergic toxicity or altered mental status may be discharged after 6 hours of observation.

Admit symptomatic patients to an ICU setting for monitoring and treatment. They may be discharged after a symptom-free period of 6 hours without use of supportive therapy or antidotes and after appropriate consultations and follow-up have been arranged.
