The book clinicians turn to first when they encounter a patient who has ingested poison. Fully referenced and featuring a consistent organization, Goldfrank's begins with an in-depth examination of general principles of medical toxicology. It then progresses to the biochemical principles and molecular basis of toxicology, and provides detailed insight into how xenobiotics affect vital signs, organs, and systems throughout the body. Next, a wide spectrum of clinically important exposures - including drugs, plants, metals, household products, occupational and environmental xenobiotics are covered within logical categories for easy access to information. Finally, the book concludes with sections on principles of practicing clinical toxicology in today's challenging healthcare environment. The tenth edition is enhanced by a beautiful full-color design.
