Pagination or Media Count:
Sodium azide NaN3 poisonings are rare but extremely deadly. There is very little in the literature regarding the clinical course of sodium azide poisoning. Virtually all of the information comes from case studies and each of those describe hypokalemia hours after poisoning. Antidotes to cyanide have been used for sodium azide poisonings but have had limited success.
