Sorry all the Sasori related threads, but I rewatched the fight and I noticed something.
Chiyo should've died, and with that, Sakura would also have died, I'll explain.
As you can see, Chiyo was cut by one of Sasori's puppets, and she never took the antidote.
Sakura said there were two antidotes, she used the first one against the Iron Sand, and Chiyo used the second one on Sakura when she was stabbed.
Which means Chiyo should've been paralyzed either during the fight, or when Sasori stabbed Sakura.
If she got paralyzed during the fight, Sakura would've never been able to get Sasori and she would get raped.
If she got paralyzed when Sakura got stabbed, Sakura would die because of her situation.
If she did take the antidote to prevent her death, Sakura would die.
In that case, Sasori would probably still kill himself.
Which means that Chiyo lived even though she was poisoned, with no explanation.
Seems like a plot hole to me, or did Kishi run out of Plot no Jutsu ideas...

Reason: Replaced 'dead' by 'paralyzed'
she did die.....remeber she gave the antidote to sakura and then she held on....sasori even said it would take 3 days to kill kankuro and the sasori fight in reality probably took an hr or 2 in the naruto vers max and then you remeber chiyo didnt have enough chakra and need to borrow narutos to save gara .....that is because the posion had her weakend
not a plot hole at all

The poison actually takes three days to kill someone. The only immediate effect is the pain and paralysis. This was seen when Kankuro was poisoned. Sakura even commented on how she was amazed that Chiyo was able to move despite being poisoned.
they had the antidote and wasn't it mentioned that Chiyo was in fact poisoned when she healed Gaara? -__-

Kankuro fell down after a few minutes after being stabbed by Hiruko's tail, Sakura fell down after a few seconds after being hit by Iron Sand: World Order, so it depends on how severe the wound is, but it was definitely a bigger wound than Kankuro's so she should've fallen down in a minute.

just like how sasuke is immune to it
That would mean that she wouldn't need the antidote at all...
