Learn About Clinical Presentations of Substance Intoxication and Withdrawal

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Learn About Clinical Presentations of Substance Intoxication and Withdrawal on our webcast. For thousands of years, almost every human society has used drugs in one form or another for their intoxicating effects. And our society is different only in that we now have access to many different drugs, both naturally occurring from plants and synthetically produced in chemical labs. Because of this, physicians need to know about the clinical presentations of more substances than ever before. To tell us about the recognition and management of substance intoxication and withdrawal, we welcome back addiction medicine specialist and Associate Professor of Psychiatry Dr. Julie Teater and also Assistant Professor from both the departments of Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine, Dr. Emily Kauffman.
