Q.

Good Poison Information Book

Dear Paed

Can you please recommend a good poison information book? I do have Tygerbergs'' Poison Information Centre number on my phone, but I would like a reference book as well. This morning my youngest drank some surgical spirits...did take him to A& E, and he''s fine so far. Watching him closely for respiratory symptoms.
