About this book

Atlas of Human Poisoning and Envenoming is a visual and written reminder of the ubiquitous sources of toxins and toxoids in the environment and the outcomes of accidental or intentional toxic exposures in humans.

Atlas of Human Poisoning and Envenoming combines the four specialties of toxicology – analytical, medical, environmental, and industrial – into one comprehensive atlas with bulleted text, tables, and figures that describe the treatment of treat toxic exposures in children and adults.

Atlas of Human Poisoning and Envenoming includes photographs and diagrams of toxic plants and animals, their mechanisms of poisoning or envenoming, and the human lesions caused by toxic exposure. The format features a clinical presentation beginning with a discussion of general management of toxic exposure. It provides useful antidotes and then details specific management strategies and antidotes for separate poisonings and envenoming.

This is the updated edition of Color Atlas of Human Poisoning and Envenoming.
