Poisoning toxins that cause functional impairments

Many poisons, depending on their chemical nature and quantity have a relative or preferential selective toxicity. The clinical picture of poisoning may dominate the symptoms of individual systems (cardiovascular, respiratory and other). The largest value in forensic practice have poisoning toxins that cause hypoxic condition (cyanide compounds, hydrogen sulphide, carbon dioxide - carbon dioxide).

  • Poisoning cyanide compounds
  • The hydrogen sulfide poisoning
  • Poisoning with carbon dioxide (carbon dioxide)
  • Acute poisoning drugs means
  • Acute poisoning psychotropic drugs
  • Poisoning ethyl alcohol
  • Poisoning with alcohol substitutes and technical liquids
