Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Societal awareness of toxins in general has been heightened in the past few decades with the increased focus on environmental concerns. The medical profession has been aware of the effects of some toxins such as lead and mercury for centuries, while other toxins have more recently been identified. Neuroscience nurses are challenged to be aware of the neurological effects of lesser known toxins, such as ciguatera and methyl bromide, and to meet the complex needs of patients who are suffering from the effects of toxic levels of these substances.
