The “Big 5” Toxidromes

Welcome to clerkship season!

Over the next few months we will be going through the biggest, hugest, most important topics in emergency medicine. And today, we will be starting off with toxicology. After covering the general approach to a toxicology case, we will also be overviewing the “Big 5” toxidromes of emergency medicine: anticholinergic, cholinergic, opioid, sedative, and sympathomimetic.  And the one thing I want you to remember is… Vitals, Pupils, Skin.
