Review of Forensic Medicine & Toxicology

by Gautam Biswas

The book "Review of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology" is divided into two sections. The first section discusses jurisprudence and forensic medicine, and the second part discusses toxicology. An added plus is the inclusion of clinical and therapeutic information, making the text ideal for persons practicing “living” forensic medicine. The book represents an excellent resource for forensic medicine practitioners, forensic pathologists, toxicologists, and others within the forensic community. This book is written specifically for persons in training and studying for board-type examinations. Topic-wise MCQs from the last 10 years are given at the end of the chapters. Question Bank I and II (Q-Bank) give a list of important questions, which the students should prepare for the professional examination and are based on the latest MBBS curriculum prepared by Directorate General of Health Services and Medical Council of India (MCI). The text is a comprehensive yet concise overview of forensic medicine and toxicology that covers many forensic topics. For example, chapters dedicated to issues, such as decompression, radiation and altitude sickness, starvation, anesthetic deaths, torture and custodial deaths, as well as many individual toxicology chapters, such as arsenic, inorganic metals, war gases and food poisoning, among many others are included.
