This handbook treats the subject of clinical poisoning by considering industrial, household, medicinal, and natural hazards sources. The individual poisons are covered by description of the clinical findings, treatment of acute poisoning, prophylaxis, and prognosis. In most cases chemical formulae are included in the description of the drug or poison. The general index includes proprietary names as well as chemical names of the various poisons and medicinals. There are few references, and the author has sacrificed this information to provide a very complete summary of the diagnosis and treatment of the clinically important poisons. This book should prove a welcome addition to any general practitioner's book shelf.
