It has become a challenge to Medical Professionals to treat the poisoning because the causes of death are varied.Though all parts of the plant are poisonous, only leaves are used for the purpose of self harm because they are readily available. It is consumed as a poison in raw form like chewing, crushing and making a juice from the leaves and also as a decoction by boiling the leaves with water. We are going to analyse which of the preparations of the poison carries higher mortality so as to enable the healthcare professionals to deliver better care to patients admitted with Cleistanthus collinus poisoning.
