Medical Toxicology - a discipline that prevents and cures disease and the side effects from exposure of potentially toxic chemical and physical agents. more
The effects of pollution
The effects of pollution are very complex and varied, and have a significant impact on people.
Contamination of the environment is divided into two main forms:
• Outdoor: pollution of the environment (transport, industrial emissions, etc.);
• Inside: indoor air pollution (smoke, air conditioners, furniture, home cleaning products, etc.).
From acute impacts should be mentioned irritation of mucous membranes (nose, eyes, oropharynx) and special form of allergy (allergic rhinitis, asthma); of chronic effects - chronic lung disease, hormonal disorders, immune and nervous disorders.
What does the Medical Toxicology
One of the main purposes of Medical Toxicology is the protect people from the harm caused by the lifestyle, environmental pollution, chronic diseases and adverse reactions to drugs and food.
Medical Toxicology develops the individual diagnostic and therapeutic course with the most modern achievements of medical science.
medical toxicological counseling for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of side effects, exposure of potentially toxic of factors;
pharmacological counseling for optimizing medicinal therapy of patients with complex clinical issues;
advising on industrial, environmental and food toxicology;
personalized toxicological diagnostics through laboratory and diagnostic-instrumental analysis.
In many cases, especially with age, becomes necessary to use more drugs. This increases, c the one hand, the possibility of side effects, and on the other may reduce the effectiveness of therapy.
First of all is recommended to carry out a careful pharmacotoxicological analysis for greater confidence in the efficiency and to avoid unexpected side effects, sometimes toxic.
During the medical examination are collected all the information on the state of health of the patient, order to identify all risk factors, and after collecting documentation on the toxicity of the agents, is developing a program of specific personal diagnostic evaluation.
After gathering all the necessary information is offered therapeutic program for reducing of toxic load. Among the various activities conducted for this purpose importance placed on environmental toxicology and optimization of drug therapy.
