    If I said 'treatment of poisoning', what would you all think of? It is one of the leads for our data interpretation and analysis assessment on Friday. I've looked up paracetamol, digoxin and opiod overdoses, plan to read up on methanol poisoning, but I'm having doubts now. Why do thay have to be so vague?

    "Treatment of poisoning" is vague.

    However, by the sounds of the paper, Paracetamol OD sounds a good bet with levels and a lovely Paracetamol level chart for interpretation. You might even have to endure the delights of calculating Parvolex doses.

    Doesn't sound like the sort of paper where you have to learn all the common antedotes - eg - glucagon in beta blocker OD etc..

    Good luck.

    I reckon it can still be the euphemism it was made out to be.

    "I'm going to viva/quiz your trousers off..."

    It works.Suppose that's the thing about euphemisms...they always work; as long as your mind is dirty enough.

    Yeah, and the other two leads aren't any better either! There's "Renal Function" and "Heart and Lung Dysfunction Tests" :rolleyes:

    I wouldn't mind it if we got that on Paracetamol though, sounds quite reasonable.

    And thanks, I do need all the luck!

    That's all we've been told, I'm afraid.
