Book Description

Emergency medical personnel and physicians need an accurate, concise toxicology guide to properly diagnose and treat patients that have been poisoned. Such a guide is critical in a region or environment in which medical personnel cannot connect to a centralized poison control center or database.

By referring to Emergency Toxicology: Management of Common Poisons, medical professionals can quickly identify and counteract the toxins that threaten their patients. This clear, thorough compilation provides guidelines for treating poisoning cases, and includes current toxicological information on commonly encountered drugs, pesticides, household products, industrial chemicals, environmental toxins, heavy metals, and various miscellaneous agents.

By briefly describing the use, mechanisms of toxicity, toxic dose, diagnosis, and clinical features of each substance, this book enables emergency personnel and physicians to expertly manage both the prehospital and hospital portions of a patient's ordeal, saving lives and accelerating recovery time.
