    Excellent. If you're going to have poison, disease, drugs, or trauma in your manuscript it's imperative that you understand these concepts. Thanks guys!

    Excellent overview of select medical concerns likely to arise in fiction, and wonderful opportunity to put questions to people who have answers.
