Abstract

[Extract] The Hazardous Substance Data Bank of the National Library of Medicine in the United States contains information on more than 5000 hazardous chemicals.1 In 2004, there were over 700 deaths due to accidental poisoning and exposure to noxious substances in Australia.2 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; however there is now also a book published by Australian physicians. The 1st edition of the Toxicology Handbook is this reference and one which will no doubt establish itself as one of the leading reference manuals in Australasia in the field of toxicology.
