General principles and techniques: how to manage the poisoned or overdosed patient, what techniques effectively eliminate toxins, which imaging studies are most useful in toxicologic emergencies, how to identify nontoxic exposures, and more.
The biomedical and molecular basis of medical toxicology: how toxins affect neurotransmission, clear explanations of the principles and mathematics behind pharmacokinetics, how toxins disrupt metabolic processes, causes of metabolic alkalosis, and much more.
The organ system approach to medical toxicology: how toxins affect vital signs, body temperature, blood pressure, and organs and systems throughout the body.
