Date:10/30/2008

New ToxED Meets Clinicians' Need for Detailed, Life-Saving Overdose Information at the Point-of-Care

ToxED offers free electronic 'Open House' in November

TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Setting a new standard for clinical toxicology poisoning and overdose references, Gold Standard Inc. has re-launched ToxED (http://www.ToxED.com). The newly updated and revised electronic clinical toxicology reference addresses clinicians' need for quick access to concise and comprehensive information at the point-of-care for the diagnosis and treatment of poisonings, drug overdoses, and exposure to chemicals and hazardous waste.

For the month of November, Gold Standard is offering a free electronic "Open House" to showcase the new version of ToxED. Just visit http://www.ToxED.com to register.

"ToxED is a crisp, concise, detailed, current and clinically relevant online resource designed to help clinicians get the information they need to support clinical care," said Michael W. Shannon, M.D., MPH, the Medical Editor-in-Chief of ToxED and co-chair of the ToxED Board. Dr. Shannon is also Chief Emeritus, Division of Emergency Medicine at Children's Hospital, Boston, and a Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. "No other source in toxicology delivers information and insight of comparable timeliness and quality delivered in an easy-to-navigate and access format."

More than 2.4 million poisonings were reported to the American Association of Poison Control Centers in 2005, and approximately 23 percent of those cases required treatment in a healthcare facility. Nearly 1,300 were fatal. On average nationally, poison control centers handle one poison exposure every 14 seconds, and 53 percent of poison exposures occur in children under the age of six.

The first version of ToxED, introduced in 2006, offered clinicians limited insight
