[Extract] The Hazardous Substance Data Bank of the National Library of Medicine in the United States contains information on more than 5000 hazardous chemicals. In Australia alone, there were over 799 deaths due to accidental poisoning in 2009. Clinicians are confronted with a formidable task in evaluating and resuscitating poisoned patients daily, sometimes under life-threatening circumstances. The availability today of a number of toxicology reference publications has assisted greatly; including a book published by Australian physicians. The Toxicology Handbook, now in its 2nd edition, is establishing itself as one of the leading reference manuals in the field of toxicology.
