Abstract

Chlorate hydrate is commonly used for neonatal sedation, but blood levels are infrequently monitored, reflecting an underemphasis of acute toxic effects. This report describes a case of chloral hydrate toxicity in a term infant with cardiac, renal, neurologic, bladder and gastrointestinal dysfunction. The effects of exchange transfusion are described as well as pharmacokinetics.
