Concise, "at the bedside" guidelines for toxicologic emergencies--derived from the premier reference in the field


"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 in-depth treatment or references/citations offered by the main text. This is more than a bedside aid -- it contains a wealth of information on the current practice of clinical toxicology. Wonderful!" -- Doody's Review Service

    Editorial Reviews

    "This portable companion version of the excellent, but much larger, more comprehensive, web-enhanced, and referenced main text is an absolute bargain and an essential component of any medical library. It is an up-to-date, pocket-sized book of tome proportions. There are a few other small books that address clinical toxicology, but this one simply does it best. For those requiring additional information, the main text is needed to find the references for each topic, but for those looking for general information about each listed topic and who can accept that it is found in Goldfrank's, this is the one small book to possess. 4 Stars!"--Doody's Review Service
