Guest Post Dr Angela Chiew – Australian Clinical Toxicologist and Emergency Staff Specialist
We recently had a great conversation with Angela Chiew (clinical toxicologist) about the new paracetamol guidelines in Australia. We picked her brains on how and why the guidelines were made, and the decisions behind the changes. We also discuss the many varied ways patients can present in overdose, how you risk assess and treat those at the bedside.
This is a packed 1 hour podcast with so many juicy pearls I was unable to edit it further. Enjoy the one-stop podcast on paracetamol overdose.
To get the most from this talk review our paracetamol page and the guidelines from the Toxicology Library
