Abstract

This is the second of a three-part series that reviews the generalized care of poisoned patients in the ICU. This article focuses on specific agents grouped into categories, including analgesics, anticoagulants, cardiovascular drugs, dissociative agents, carbon monoxide, cyanide, methemoglobinemia, cholinergic agents, psychoactive medications, sedative-hypnotics, amphetamine-like drugs, toxic alcohols, and withdrawal states. The first article discussed the general approach to the toxicology patient, including laboratory testing; the third article will cover natural toxins.
