Chapter 4, Poison Antidotes, covers toxidromes
of parasympathetic and sympathetic toxins, herbal poisonings, central nervous system toxins, and metal exposure.

The present study provides an important basis for understanding the major toxidromes
of combined MA and morphine abuse in the ED.
As a result of using Google Glass, consulting toxicologists reported being more confident in diagnosing specific toxidromes
3) As a result, the objectives of this retrospective review were (1) to identify the most common seasonal seafood vectors of Haff disease in the US; (2) to describe the most commonly recurring clinical and laboratory manifestations; and (3) to compare the Haff disease toxidrome
with other similar seafood-poisoning toxidromes
to further define the mechanisms of the seafoodborne poisoning and to expose potential causative aquatic toxins.
This article highlights several important points including relative diagnostic criteria and the importance of differentiation of the toxidromes
associated with varying toxicants.
These records were consistently assessed regarding age, gender, agents involved in the exposure, exposure time, type, route, reason, presenting symptoms, and signs especially these consistent with toxidromes
, management, clinical course, laboratory investigations, and final outcome.
It is vital for the clinician to maintain both a basic fund of knowledge and a high index of suspicion when facing clinical toxidromes
in order to manage and monitor patients suspected of intoxication with synthetic cathi-nones, synthetic cannabinoids, and future emerging toxins.
Be aware of the common toxidromes
associated with drugs of abuse as this might assist with a more rapid clinical diagnosis (Table 1).
son una ayuda de aproximacion diagnostica en los pacientes con sospecha de intoxicacion aguda, los cuales ayudan a hacer el acercamiento diagnostico segun las manifestaciones clinicas que presente el paciente y asi, a su vez, poder tratar de identificar el posible toxico responsable (58).
There is a 190-page Appendix containing information on just about every abstract topic one could think of in the field of toxicology, such as lists of drugs that are safe in certain disease states; conversion tables; chemical warfare agents; drug concentration ranges associated with therapeutic doses, overdose, and lethal concentrations; guidelines for animal and human bites; plants; radiation exposure; seizure management; and a wide range of toxidromes
Antidotes are only of potential value in the treatment of plants containing cardiac glycosides and those that present with cholinergic and anticholinergic toxidromes
