Administering an irritant that will stimulate vomiting -swallowing of corrosive substances causes severe irritation and tissue destruction of the mucous membrane of the gi tract. measures are taken to immediately remove the toxin or reduce its absorption. for corrosive poison ingestion, such as in muriatic acid where burn or perforation of the mucosa may occur, gastric emptying procedure is immediately instituted, this includes gastric lavage and the administration of activated charcoal to absorb the poison. administering an irritant with the concomitant vomiting to remove the swallowed poison will further cause irritation and damage to the mucosal lining of the digestive tract. vomiting is only indicated when non-corrosive poison is swallowed.
