Readers of previous editions of Goldfrank’s Toxicologic Emergencies are undoubtedly aware that the editors have always felt that an emphasis on general management of poisoning or overdoses coupled with sound medical management is more important or as important as the selection and use of a specific antidote in the vast majority of cases. Nevertheless, there are some instances where nothing other than the timely use of a specific antidote or therapy will be essential for a patient. For this reason, and also because the use of such strategies may be problematic, controversial, or unfamiliar to the practitioner (as new antidotes continue to emerge), we have included a section (or sections) at the end of each chapter where an in-depth discussion of such antidotes and therapies are relevant. The following Antidotes in Depth are included in this edition.
