Emergency Medicine Australasia , Fergus Kerr -- "This text has undergone major renovations. It is a testament to the skills of its editor and authors. It is pleasing to see a more diverse representation of contributors from other countries, including a significant contribution from Australia. As a significant reference text, Medical Toxicology 3rd Edition is a success, bringing the more recent advances in the understanding and management and of the poisoned patient to print. For those looking for a contemporary toxicology reference text, this represents value for money." BiologyBooks.net -- "The third edition of Medical Toxicology goes back to the first edition roots: a plethora of useful topics written in a clear, concise manner. The book provides excellent detail needed for the understanding of a wide range of toxicologic problems. Treatment recommendations are as evidence-based as possible given the field of study. The third section of the book focuses on one of the key elements of being a toxicologist: detective! The section is titled, "Diagnosis of the Poisoned Patient: The Toxicologist as Sleuth". Rarely do patients present with a (accurate) diagnosis. It's the job of the clinician to take all the available information, work through the possibilities, and identify the most likely agents that could be causing the observed effects. This is an outstanding resource and should be considered for critical care and emergency clinicians as well as poison center staff (especially those still in training in these areas). Given the popularity of TV and movie scripts that include toxicologic information (e.g., CSI, ER, etc.) those writers would do well to review this text."
