Toxicology Season 2 Episode 1: Opioids

This is Season 2 of the Toxicology podcast series that Seattle Childrens’ Toxicologist Suzan Mazor, MD and I put together. This three episode season turns its focus to drugs of abuse – beginning with this episode on opioid toxicity. So, slow your breathing, constrict your pupils, and focus in for the return of #ToxTuesdays.
