Toxicology Season 1 Episode 3: Acetaminophen

This is episode three of season one of the Toxicology series that Suzan Mazor, the Medical Director for Toxicology at Seattle Children’s, and I are putting together. This episode focuses on one of the most common intentional ingestions – Acetaminophen.

For those of you from across the ocean – this episode tackles paracetamol, and for you chemists out there, N-acetyl-p-aminophenol (APAP).

Suzan reviews toxicity and management and perhaps this one will help you care for an upcoming patient, and get a couple of questions right on your boards.

Toxicology Season 1 Episode 2: Decontamination and Elimination

This is episode 2 of season one of the Toxicology series that Suzan Mazor, the Medical Director for Toxicology at Seattle Children’s, and I are putting together. This follow up episode focuses on a decontamination and elimination in the poisoned pediatric patient and offers many pearls that will serve as a foundation for upcoming episodes – including why Ipecac is no longer prescribed to every 4 month old!
