Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The only chapters indexed for kindle are sections 1, 2, 3. None of the numerous drugs or antidotes can be found in the table of contents making the manual impossible to use efficiently. A complete waste of money. If you buy the book, spring for the paper version. I cannot even comment on the content because it is so impossible to use that I have barely accessed it at all.

For all ER, IM residents doing their tox rotation. This book is pretty high yield.
If you read Section one prior to your rotation, you will shine in your first week.
Even during the rotation, I'm coontinually going back to this book.

A book that I will also bring with me to my ER.

The content in the book provides very basic information on handling poisonings and overdoses. I have completed some training at a poison control center, so I am familiar with expected information when handling an emergent poisoning and overdose case.

The handbook is mainly useful if you have no background in toxicology and are seeking to attain a basic understanding in managing drug and substance exposures.

As one newer to the field of toxicology, I am very pleased with this resource. The information is very concise and in alphabetical order. This book is available at my place of work and several of my colleagues, nurses and physicians, have their own copies for reference. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a concise source of toxicological information.

It's a great book but a little boring. I think it could be a great book to refer to when you need to learn about some specific poisoning. It could be pretty boring when it comes to reading it as such for more than half an hour.
