Based on the standard reference in the field, Goldfrank’s Toxicologic Emergencies, 8th Ed., this manual provides an easier gateway to information on the management and treatment of poisoning and overdoses. The Manual includes abridged and edited versions of all the chapters in the major work from initial evaluation of the patient and diagnostic imaging through to chapters on all important toxins. The Manual also utilizes the unique case-based approach that distinguishes Goldranks’s from other toxicology references.
This manual is for ready use at a patient’s bedside or for an overview of medical toxicology for housestaff, medical/pharmacy/nursing students,
and other individuals who do not need the indepth treatment or references/citations offered by the main text.
