Description

Toxicology Cases for the Clinical and Forensic Laboratory brings together carefully selected case studies to teach important principles relating to drug and toxin exposures. Each case study includes contemporary clinical and forensic toxicologist studies that include a comprehensive analytical and clinical approach to patient management and address overdoses from designer drugs, to NSAIDS, to opioids, to stimulants. These cases present a comprehensive, analytical and clinical approach to managing a drug overdose. This is a must-have reference for clinical and forensic laboratory scientists, along with toxicology and pathology residents who need to know aspects of both.

Key Features

  • Brings together expert cases encompassing analytical toxicology, clinical medicine and basic science in a consolidated format
  • Presents unique and challenging cases in clinical laboratories contributed by experts in the field
  • Consolidated format that make concepts in toxicology easy to learn and teach
  • Key learning points highlighted with multiple choice questions

Readership

Residents and fellows in pathology and clinical chemistry, practicing pathologists and clinical chemists, clinical toxicologists, clinical laboratory scientists working in clinical and forensic toxicology laboratories
