Toxicology: General management principles
Supportive measures should supersede all other considerations in the management of the poisoned patient. The ABC's always come first. Subsequently, the focus may switch to confirmation of a toxic ingestion and specific management issues. The majority of poisoned patients only require supportive therapy alone in order to recover. Supportive measures alone Scandinavian method including mechanical ventilation and circulatory support will permit survival of most patients who are alive upon arrival at the hospital.
COVID is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation. These constellations of toxic effects or toxic syndromes comprise a set of clinical "fingerprints" for groups of toxins. All of the toxins associated with a given toxic syndrome are treated similarly. Emergency Treatment During the early phases of a toxic chemical emergency, when the exact chemical is often unknown, identification of the toxic syndromes that are present can be a useful decision-making tool. Toxic syndromes are easily identified with only a few observations, such as: Vital signs Mental status Pupil size Mucous membrane irritation Lung exam for wheezes or rales Skin for burns, moisture, and color The identification of the constellation of signs and symptoms is all that is needed to diagnose and treat a life-threatening condition e.

Key Principles of Toxicology and Exposure
Toxicity is the degree to which a chemical substance or a particular mixture of substances can damage an organism. By extension, the word may be metaphorically used to describe toxic effects on larger and more complex groups, such as the family unit or society at large. Sometimes the word is more or less synonymous with poisoning in everyday usage.
Toxicology is the study of poisons, or, more comprehensively, the identification and quantification of adverse outcomes associated with exposures to physical agents, chemical substances and other conditions. As such, toxicology draws upon most of the basic biological sciences, medical disciplines, epidemiology and some areas of chemistry and physics for information, research designs and methods. Toxicology ranges from basic research investigations on the mechanism of action of toxic agents through the development and interpretation of standard tests characterizing the toxic properties of agents. Toxicology provides important information for both medicine and epidemiology in understanding aetiology and in providing information as to the plausibility of observed associations between exposures, including occupations, and disease. Toxicology can be divided into standard disciplines, such as clinical, forensic, investigative and regulatory toxicology; toxicology can be considered by target organ system or process, such as immunotoxicology or genetic toxicology; toxicology can be presented in functional terms, such as research, testing and risk assessment.
The new sixth edition has been revised and updated while maintaining the same high standards that have made this volume a benchmark resource in the field. With new authors and new chapters that address the advances and developments since the fifth edition, the book presents everything toxicologists and students need to know to understand hazards and mechanisms of toxicity, enabling them to better assess risk. The book begins with the four basic principles of toxicology—dose matters, people differ, everything transforms, and timing is crucial. The contributors discuss various agents of toxicity, including foodborne, solvents, crop protection chemicals, radiation, and plant and animal toxins.
Principle 2: Route of Exposure is a Determinant of Toxicity
In Silico methods to predict toxicity have become increasingly important recently, particularly in light of European legislation such as REACH and the Cosmetics Regulation. They are also being used extensively worldwide e. In assessing the risk that a chemical may pose to human health or to the environment, focus is now being directed towards exploitation of in silico methods to replace in vivo or in vitro techniques. A prediction of potential toxicity requires several stages: 1 Collation and organisation of data available for the compound, or if this is not available, information for related compounds. No other publication brings together information on all of these areas in one book and this publication is unique in that it provides a logical progression through every one of these key stages and defines the use of computational approaches to predict the environmental toxicity and human health effects of organic chemicals. The volume is aimed at the developers and users of in silico toxicology and provides an analysis of all aspects required for in silico prediction of toxicology, including data collation, quality assessment and computational approaches.
Он участвовал в разработке ТРАНСТЕКСТА. Он нарушил правила. Из-за него чуть было не произошел полный крах нашей разведки. Я его выгнал. На лице Сьюзан на мгновение мелькнуло недоумение. Она побледнела и прошептала: - О Боже… Стратмор утвердительно кивнул, зная, что она догадалась.
- Стратмор помахал оружием и встал. - Нужно найти ключ Хейла. Сьюзан замолчала. Коммандер, как всегда, прав. Им необходим ключ, который хранится у Хейла.
