This thoroughly revised and updated Third Edition of the classic Medical Toxicology is the definitive reference on the management of poisoned patients. More than 300 well-organized chapters written by eminent authorities guide clinicians through the diagnosis and treatment of every poisoning or drug overdose. Chapter outlines, headings, and a detailed index enable readers to quickly locate exactly the information they need.

    Great book!

    Overall, this is a wonderful toxicology text book which has a lot of different strengths. Though there is one or two rare errors, this text makes a statement to be an authoratative text for toxicology, similar to Goldfrank's.
