Toxicology Season 1 Episode 1: General approach to the poisoned patient

This is episode 1 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 premiere episode focuses on a solid general approach to the poisoned pediatric patient and offers many pearls that will serve as a foundation for upcoming episodes.

I am now proud to offer CME through Cincinnati Children’s. To claim CME & ABP MOC Part 2, visit Cincinnati Children’s Online Courses and search ‘PEM Currents’.
