5.0 out of 5 stars Portable and cheap answers to clinical questions, 9 Nov 2006
By 
Corrine Balit "Corrine" (Sydney) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Toxicology Handbook (Paperback)
Great book. So far has answered all my tox managemet questions in the ER quickly and without fuss. Cuts through all those questions like "should I or should'nt I give charcoal?" or "is this an issue?" and gives confidence in providing supportive care in the majority of poisonings. Although there are chapters on Australian envenoming, practiontioners elsewhere would like the chapters on pharmaceutical and illicit drug ODs. Portable and very cheap compared to comprehensive US texts.Patient focused unlke some web or computer-based products.

5.0 out of 5 stars If I ever had to treat a snakebite............., 7 Nov 2006
This review is from: Toxicology Handbook (Paperback)
Perfect handbook for accident and emergency care of toxicology patients. Well structured chapters dealing with all the common drugs, and some less common envenomations (not many snakes around here!). Fundamental principles well outlined, practical approach to the management of all poisoned patients. Will be the pocketbook for all emergency physicians, elective students, intensivists and general practitioners. The new standard in toxicology care

5.0 out of 5 stars I thought I knew about drugs, 7 Nov 2006
By 
Koos (Liverpool) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Toxicology Handbook (Paperback)
If you think you know all about the pharmacological effects of drugs and toxins on the body, and their management.....think again. This book will open your mind to a new level of understanding of toxicology. No longer a black cauldron of despair. Now you can actually approach the poisoned patient with an answer, using the 'risk assessment' approach to toxicology as outlined in this book, you will be able to deal with all the complex issues pertaining to overdose and envenomation

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most informative textbooks I have read, 7 Nov 2006
By 
This review is from: Toxicology Handbook (Paperback)
I am frequently asked to review books for publication, to check content, omissions, relevance and readability. This book was handed to me last week, and I have to say I have been unable to put it down. Full of facts, all pertinent to the practice of acute and emergency medicine; compact; correct and I hate to say it.......interesting. Great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Toxicology at a glance, 7 Nov 2006
This review is from: Toxicology Handbook (Paperback)
Many books have tried and failed to provide a comprehensive, yet brief summation of the treatment principles for toxicology. This book has achieved all this, and more. A very readable text in its own right, packed with information, handy hints and tips. It has a Southern Hemisphere feel, great for all those embarking on travels, but retains all the information required to treat poisonings all over the world
