Poisoning in Children

by Rajniti Prasad, Utpal Kant Singh, FC Layland, Shivani Singh

This book provides practical guidelines on the diagnosis and management of acute poisonings likely to be encountered in children. There is an additional chapter on animal poisoning due to snakes and scorpions. This book also provides an outline of the pathophysiology of poisoning. As a noteworthy innovation, each chapter concludes with key points in the diagnosis and treatment of the particular poisoning. This concise book is authoritative and yet makes easy reading. This volume will be an ideal companion to students, residents and pediatricians. It is recommended for all Intensive Care Units and for all those who regularly treat cases of poisoning. This edition represents major revision and reorganization. Three new chapters have been added and matters on scorpion bite, organophosphorus, iron, acetaminophen, cocaine, kerosene, pyrethroid, aluminium, cowdung powder and nicotine have been completely revised. Obsolete materials have been eliminated and replaced by new text that reflects modern trend in management of principal victims. However, care has been taken to retain the original format, style and rapid access to important information. The new chapters on theophylline, calcium channel blocker and benzodiazepines should prove immensely useful for undergraduates, postgraduates, pediatricians and general practitioners.
