Clinical Toxicology

Clinical toxicology involves the detection and treatment of poisonings caused by a wide variety of substances, including household and industrial products, animal poisons and venoms, environmental agents, pharmaceuticals, and illegal drugs.

Each year poisonings account for approximately 43,000 deaths and at least 2.3 million emergency department visits. Males have a nearly twofold higher incidence of death than do females and 15% of adult poisoning deaths are attributed to suicide. Approximately 0.2% of poisoning deaths involve children younger than 5 years. Emergency department visits for drug misuse and abuse, typically 51% involve illicit drugs, 59% involve pharmaceuticals, and 30% involve alcohol in combination with other drugs and underage drinking.
