Inhalation of amyl nitrite has been recommended in the past to produce methaemoglobinaemia, but it is poorly tolerated and only low circulating levels of methaemoglobin may be achieved before profound hypotenSion occurs. Methaemoglobinemia is therefore best achieved by the intravenous administration of sodium nitrite. Traditionally a combination of intravenous sodium nitrite and sodium thiosulphate is used in the treatment of cyanide poisoning. Experiments in dogs have shown that the LDso for cyanide may be increased three-fold by sodium thiosulphate alone, five-fold by sodium nitrite alone and eighteen-fold by the use of the two antidotes together.
