Let's see if we can induce emesis and remove however much of that shirt remains in her stomach. This is done by dosing her with 45 mL of 3% hydrogen peroxide by means of a small poultry baster placed between her cheek teeth and cheek. She should vomit within 15 minutes. If not, please repeat the same dose. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
