Toxicology; an overview of three common household toxins (for Nurses)
Identification and treatment of toxin exposure should occur as soon as possible to increase survival rates. This webinar will provide an in-depth look at the pathophysiology, clinical symptoms and nursing techniques required for three common household toxins to include; metaldehyde (snail/slug bait), rodenticides (rat bait) and the lily plant.
With case studies and multiple choice questions, this webinar will prepare the attendee with the skill set to treat patients with toxin exposure, effectively. A comprehensive consideration of bodily systems and disease processes such as the coagulation cascade, disseminated intravascular coagulation and acute renal failure, will assist the attendee in understanding these three toxins and their treatment.
