Use of Activated Absorbent Haemoperfusion in Acute Intoxication

  • Roy Goulding


In reporting on this work devoted to the treatment of acute drug overdosage and carried out over the past four years at the Poisons Unit, Guy’s Hospital, London, U.K., my colleagues and I claim no credit as innovators. Indeed, we are mindful of the sound basis to haemoperfusion that was hewn out by Yatsidis and, above all, by Professor Chang here in Montreal, to whom as host I should like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation and gratitude, not only for conceiving and organising this current symposium but also for inviting me personally to participate and, in so doing, facilitating my attendance.
