Poisonings and overdoses due to pharmaceutical agents result in more than 100,000 hospital admissions every year. Toxic alcohols, calcium channel blockers, beta-adrenergic antagonists, benzodiazepines, opioids, acetaminophen, tricyclic antidepressants, and salicylates are just some examples of agents associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality when ingested. Reviewing the mechanism of toxicity due to specific agents, along with the mechanism of action, dosing, and adverse effects of appropriate antidotes, is important for the successful management of these patients.
In addition, recreational activity sometimes leads to injury caused by environmental conditions, such as heatstroke, hyperthermia, hypothermia, drowning, and burns. A familiarity with such environmental emergencies is essential for providers to care for the critically injured.
