The best edition yet of the landmark text in medical toxicology
A Doody’s Core Title for 2019!
Covering every aspect of poison management, this indispensable case-based resource has been thoroughly refreshed to deliver evidence-based principles viewed through the lens of an active bedside clinical practice. In no other reference will you find such a diverse roster of esteemed editors and authors who deliver expert insights into every type of toxicologic emergency, whether due to substance abuse or exposure to toxins.
Fully referenced and supported by a cohesive organization and full-color format, Goldfrank’s
