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. This edition includes new chapters on biological and chemical weapons and on diagnosis of patients with apparent symptoms of poisoning when the cause is unknown. The book includes comparative commentary on toxicology practice in the United States, Europe, Australia, and Asia.
