4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"...the definitive reference for the field of toxicology. This update comes four years after the seventh edition and it retains much that has made this an authoritative textbook, adds 30 new chapters, and a "new to this edition" online link to color photographs....the breadth of Goldfrank's new edition makes it worth purchasing for anyone who frequently, or even occasionally, treats toxicologic cases, even for those who own earlier editions. The editors and authors are to be commended for their compulsive revision, with attention to detail, every four years of this authoritative book."--Doody's Review Service

The #1 reference in the field for the last quarter of a century, Goldfrank's Toxicologic Emergencies, Eighth Edition, has been completely updated to equip emergency physicians with today's most authoritative guide to clinical toxicology. The book presents unsurpassed coverage of all aspects of toxicologic emergencies--from pharmacology and clinical presentation to treatment guidelines and case studies. Using a unique case-study approach, it fully examines general principles and techniques, the biochemical and molecular basis of toxicology, and how toxins affect vital signs, organs, and systems throughout the body.

The completely updated Eighth Edition features:

  • A case-based approach that maximizes understanding of clinical applications of the material
  • Easy-to-find, detailed guidance on the use of antidotes
  • Quick-reference tables on inside covers, providing immediate access to “must-have” vital-sign statistics, lab values, and common equations
  • Expanded coverage of bioterrorism, inhalant abuse, and international considerations
  • A companion website with more than 1200 self-assessment questions and annotated answers, critical cases in medical toxicology, and more than 100 color photos of plants, mushrooms, spiders, snakes, marine life, and dermatologic reactions of toxicologic importance
