Medical Toxicology, celebrates its first year of delivering scientific journal content in a
humorous and enjoyable audio podcast, available on iTunes.
Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) February 14, 2013 -- The Journal of Medical Toxicology (JMT), the official print
journal of the American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT), celebrates a successful first year of
delivering entertaining synopses of each print issue of the journal in the form of a fast-paced and humorous
audio podcast. Available on iTunes and the ACMT website, the JMT podcast is hosted by Dr. Howard Greller,
a medical toxicologist at North Shore University Hospital and co-host of The Emergency Medicine Show on
Sirius XM Doctor Radio, and Dr. Dan Rusyniak, Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at Indiana
University School of Medicine. According to the Editor-in-Chief of JMT, Dr. Leslie Dye, “Howard and Dan are
the ‘Click and Clack’ of Medical Toxicology”.
Each edition of the JMT Podcast begins with the “Cast Call”, an in depth discussion of the top article selected
by each of the hosts. They then feature a discussion and review of the various scientific studies, as well as
commentary on the interesting case reports, editorials, and visual items included in the month’s issue. Topics
covered are diverse and range from poisoning due to common exposures such as pesticides, bath salts, and
alcohol, to unusual causes of toxicity, including pine nuts, cream of tartar, and bark scorpion stings. Important
public health topics including the adverse effects related to opioid abuse and misuse, emerging designer drugs
of abuse, and the toxicities related to newly approved medications such as anticoagulants are common topics
covered by the journal issues and the corresponding podcast.
In addition to the quarterly JMT Podcast, Drs. Greller and Rusyniak produce supplemental 'Author in the
Room' (AIR) episodes to provide an up-close and personal interview with leaders in the field of Medical
Toxicology. Dr. Edward Boyer, Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University Of Massachusetts School
Of Medicine, was the first to be highlighted in 2012. An upcoming AIR Podcast will feature an interview with
Drs. Lewis Nelson and Jeanmarie Perrone, who were the guest editors for the December 2012 JMT issue
devoted to opioid use and misuse.
