This manual is for all health personnel involved in the prevention, recognition, and treatment of pesticide poisoning. However, the information should be of particular interest to nurses especially those working in rural clinics, hospital emergency rooms, and departments of public health. This book deals mainly with two major types of pesticide illness: acute systemic poisoning and topical (local) effects.
