Donald P. Included is information on the health hazards of pesticides currently in use, along with current consensus recommendations for management of poisonings and injuries caused by them. Formatted for quick reference by through indexing, the book addresses poisoning by insecticides, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, rodenticides, fumigants, and other solvents, acaricides, repellents, and adjuvants. Indexed by symptoms and signs and by chemical and product names.

The Office of Pesticide Programs of the . Environmental Protection Agency has sponsored the series since 1973. There is general agreement that prevention of pesticide poisoning remains a much surer path to safety and health than reliance on treatment. Most indoor uses of organophosphates have been eliminated, and a combination of EPA risk mitigation actions has limited their use on food crops. In addition to the inherent toxicity of pesticides, none of the medical procedures or drugs used in treating poisonings is risk free.
Most poisonings from pesticides do not have a specific antidote, making decontamination the most important intervention. For maximal benefit to the patient, skin, eye, and gastric decontamination should be undertaken while specifics of the poisoning are being determined. As in most illnesses and injuries, the history of the poisoning is of great importance and will determine specific needs for decontamination and therapy, if any exist. Protection of health care workers during the decontamination process is important and frequently overlooked.
Organophosphate poisoning is poisoning due to organophosphates (OPs). Organophosphates are used as insecticides, medications, and nerve agents. Symptoms include increased saliva and tear production, diarrhea, vomiting, small pupils, sweating, muscle. Symptoms include increased saliva and tear production, diarrhea, vomiting, small pupils, sweating, muscle tremors, and confusion. While onset of symptoms is often within minutes to hours, some symptoms can take weeks to appear. Symptoms can last for days to weeks.
