Slows the effects of poison, so as to suspend the damage or death for as long as the duration of the spell. During this period of suspension, the poisoned creature will suffer no damage.

This allows time for means to be found to manage the poison during that period, either by neutralizing it or bestowing enough hit points to enable the poisoned creature to survive. However, if no steps are taken, the full effect of the poison will enact upon the victim when the spell’s duration has expired.
