Published under the flag of Indian Society of Critical Care Medicine (ISCCM), this book is the result of sustained effort and brainstorming by the authors almost every week for one year online and physically.�

The book contains updated information about the most important poisons in India, namely aluminum phosphide, organophosphorus, corrosive, and parquet poisoning. Recent advances in each poisoning have been included. It is a comprehensive compendium of pathophysiology, antidotes, and management strategies for the best outcomes in these poisonings. In the end, more information is given in the form of annexures. The annexures include charts, diagrammatic depictions, quotes from specific studies, and algorithms of a few poisoning management strategies. The annexure will offer a bird`s eye view to the reader about each poisoning. The chapter on snakebite (a common poisoning though) was not included because the Government of India`s document on this topic is comprehensive and well-received. Some medicinal poisoning issues have also been discussed. The editors feel that more poisons (though not common) may be included in future editions of the book.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
