  • Cole, George A.;
  • Rasmussen, Richard W.

These processes--accidents, infectious diseases, chemical toxicity, respiratory conditions, and environmental exposures--are reviewed according to their etiologies. An awareness of these problems will allow the physician to deal more effectively with them.
