From the Back Cover:
“There is perhaps nothing more anxiety provoking to the health care professional than caring for a critically ill child... many clinicians have limited experience in treating critically ill children, especially poisoned children. Ironically, despite the fact that nearly two-thirds of all poisoning cases reported to nation-wide poison control centers involve children, few reference sources are available to the practitioner that specifically address the care of the poisoned child... we sincerely believe that if this textbook assists one clinician in saving the life of one child, all the work was worthwhile.”
