Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kathy J. Rinnert, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This comprehensive text provides a thorough and in-depth review of the diagnosis and management of the poisoned/intoxicated patient. It provides a case-based, organ systems approach to a multitude of toxic ingestions and exposures. This fifth edition replaces the previous edition published in 1990.
Purpose: This book provides sound practical advice for management of toxicologic emergencies. Additionally, it serves as a resource and reference in dealing with less common ingestions and exposures. The objectives are noteworthy, given the hundreds of intoxications and exposures managed each day. The authors do an excellent job in providing a comprehensive and practical text. Dr. Goldfrank is to be commended!
Audience: Recognizing that knowledge of toxicology is an important part of many medical specialties, this book serves emergency physicians, internists, pediatricians, and family practitioners. Dr. Goldfrank is a well-recognized expert in the field of toxicology and continues to distinguish himself with this newest edition, some 16 years after the first. Dr. Goldfrank has assembled numerous internationally known experts in the fields of pharmacology, pediatrics, and toxicology to provide the reader with truly expert advice.
Features: Although illustrations are sparse, tables are generously used to organize and amplify information from the text. Extensive bibliographies end each chapter and serve as a current reference list for more detailed review of individual topics. The appearance is clean and the writing style readable and concise. Unique assets of this book include a section that features a workbook of case studies from regional poison centers and toxicology consult service patients. Additionally, approximately 950 multiple choice questions, cross-referenced according to chapter, act as an excellent boards review tool.
Assessment: This text is a must for any clinician who performs primary care. Those physicians who manage acute intoxications will appreciate its succinct and clear style. The newest edition provides updated and revised information in each chapter.
Jon Olsen
This is the sixth edition of a comprehensive textbook of toxicologic emergencies. The previous edition was published in 1994. The purpose is to provide better patient care and stimulate interest in medical toxicology. These worthy objectives are well accomplished. This book is written for students of medicine, nursing, and pharmacy, residents in emergency medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, preventive health, and family practice, and fellows in medical toxicology, as well as attending physicians. The authors and contributors are primarily medical toxicologists and PharmDs. This edition includes 12 new chapters including a section on antidotes-in-depth and expanded discussions of serotonin reuptake inhibitors, paralytics, and EKGs in toxicology. It includes basic science, clinical manifestations, and treatment of toxicologic and numerous environmental emergencies. Four pages of color plates are useful, but should be expanded to include color plates of toxic plants/mushrooms since the small black-and-white illustrations of these toxins are not very useful to the practitioner. This is the comprehensive textbook of medical toxicology that should be on the shelf of every practitioner who deals with toxicologic emergencies. The alternative reference is the computer version of Poisindex, which is more useful in specific ingestions, but is not as comprehensive in toxicologic principles as this text. This is a needed update of previous editions.
