Other features include a medication index, syndromes glossary, surgical glossary, laboratory values, and tables.
The Fifth Edition has new emergency department material including ingestion of caustics, opioids, and “ecstasy-type” drugs. New material on childhood obesity, metabolic syndrome, and probiotics is also included.
