Overview

The complete "how-to" poison management resource -depend on it to stay totally current and well informed!

Goldfrank's TOXICOLOGIC EMERGENCIES, 7th Edition, delivers a goldmine of information on virtually all aspects of medical toxicology. No space is wasted-even the inside of the front and back covers provides you with essential information in easy-to-read table form. Before you've even turned a page, you'll have immediate access to such valuable data as vital signs by age group, common drug and toxin-induced vital sign changes, common toxicology laboratory values and more.

And if you think the inside covers are helpful, just wait until you see what the text itself has to offer. Organized into four convenient sections, TOXICOLOGIC EMERGENCIES comprehensively covers:
* General principles and techniques: how to manage the poisoned or overdosed patient, what techniques effectively eliminate toxins, which imaging studies are most useful in toxicologic emergencies, how to identify nontoxic exposures, and more
* The biomedical and molecular basis of medical toxicology: how toxins affect neurotransmission, clear explanations of the principles and mathematics behind pharmacokinetics, how toxins disrupt metabolic processes, causes of metabolic alkalosis, and much more
* The organ system approach to medical toxicology: how toxins affect vital signs, body temperature, blood pressure, and organs and systems throughout the body
* Medical toxicology from a clinical perspective: a close-up look at more than 70 categories of toxins, featuring informative case studies as well as signs and symptoms, diagnostic testing, pathophysiology, and in-depth patient management guidelines
