Concise and authoritative, Clinical Toxicology: Principles and Mechanisms examines the complex interactions associated with clinical toxicological events and chemical exposure or drug administration. The author places special emphasis on signs and symptoms of diseases and pathology caused by toxins and clinical drugs. He covers contemporary issues in clinical toxicology, such as biological and chemical toxins, changes in protocols for managing toxic ingestions, new antidotes, changes in particular treatments, and pharmacology and toxicology of herbal products.
After introducing the fundamental principles of toxicology, the book presents the toxicity of therapeutic and non-therapeutic agents in separate sections. Most chapters start with a basic review of the general physiology and pharmacology principles necessary for understanding the underlying mechanisms of toxicity. The book includes numerous drawings, figures, and tables that improve understanding of the mechanisms involved in chemical exposure. It covers widely distributed chemical agents and currently used therapeutic drugs that possess hazardous effects either as principle mechanisms of action or as untoward adverse drug reactions. A reader-friendly exposition of clinical toxicology, Clinical Toxicology: Principles and Mechanisms can be used as a stand-alone text or a professional reference.
