Clinical Toxicology

Clinical toxicology is a subspecialty of toxicology dealing with the bedside management of poisoned patients, including definitive toxicological diagnosis, assessment of immediate severity and long-term prognosis, and selection of treatments including antidotes. Knowledge of potential drug and chemical hazards allows a clinical toxicologist to participate in the preparedness for and prevention of chemical intoxications. Toxicants are a major cause of clinical disease. Therefore, clinical toxicology is part of internal medicine, strongly benefiting from other medical specialties. Clinical toxicology requires having a strong basis in pharmacology.
