Praise for the first edition"Toxic Trauma is a welcome addition to the literature. . . . Although written for clinicians, the book contains chapters that should be read by administrators and other health care professionals to ensure they understand and can inform the public in a balanced manner about the logistic considerations, and widespread consequences across systems when an event does occur. Any healthcare library should consider this book an essential text."
--Michael Nurok, American Journal of Disaster Medicine
"This book excels as a reference for those interested in learning about and designing systems to better handle toxic trauma."
--Michael D. Zwank, Doody’s Book Reviews
