Numerous references describe the initial treatment of the acutely poisoned patient; however, this new book is the first major critical care toxicology resource that details patient care from hospital admission and treatment all the way through stabilization, monitoring, and discharge. It presents practical, state-of-the-art treatment recommendations based on initial and subsequent presentation of symptoms, and describes when it's safe to discharge the patient.

  • Individual sections comprehensively cover general management of the critically poisoned patient · toxic syndromes · poisoning by medications · drugs of abuse · chemical agents · biological toxins · agents of chemical and biological terrorism · and antidotes.
  • Each chapter features the guidance of medical toxicologists who have particular expertise in the area discussed.
  • LI>Coverage includes discussions of the specific clinical concerns involved in treating poisoned pediatric, pregnant, and geriatric patients, as well as general psychiatric issues relevant to the critically poisoned patient.
