Description of Lippincott's Manual of Toxicology


The Lippincott's Manual of Toxicology is a great book for a toxicology study, book available in pdf format for free download. Why another toxicology handbook for the busy clinician? Many toxicology handbooks provide the reader with generalizations and bullet points but are not specific enough to guide the care of the individual patient who requires immediate emergency management. Other handbooks may be overly prescriptive in their recommendations and fail to adequately consider the nuances of diagnosis and management that vary with each patient and each poisoning.

Those who are familiar with Harwood-Nuss’s Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine already know it as a concise and practical, yet comprehensive and accurate, bedside guide to emergency care, as well as a valuable resource for education and reference.


These chapters, extracted from the Harwood-Nuss textbook, are easy to read and easy to use, with critical interventions and common pitfalls specifically highlighted. They are written by an impressive array of board-certified practicing medical toxicologists, who have drawn from their extensive clinical experience and well-established expertise to provide the clinician with the latest practical evidence-based recommendations on both the common poisonings and the rare and obscure ones.


A world of toxicologic wisdom is packaged in this pocket-sized handbook, ready for use at a moment’s notice to guide the critical emergency management of the poisoned patient.
