I take off my Akubra (the Aussie cowboy hat we all wear….well in movies) to you!

An international authority who actually says something has not been shown to be useful is a rare and precious thing.

Can I please pre order 3 copies of your book, and will you be good enough to sign mine?

My credit card details are:    well, I will give that to you ‘off list’.


Cheers, Paul

As an internationally recognized Medical Toxicology "expert" in cyanide poisoning who is currently co-editing what I hope will be the definitive cyanide poisoning reference book to be published next year by John Wiley & Sons, Chichester, UK, I will point out that all published literature only suggests that oxygen (even 100% oxygen delivered by entotracheal tube) and hyperbaric oxygen have never been conclusively shown to be beneficial by themselves, but only as an additive or synergistic therapy with approved cyanide antidotes.
However, I do understand that you have to comply with whatever rules, guidelines, and regulations your institution works under. 
Best wishes.
