JOHANNESBURG – Africa Health Exhibition & Congress 2018 is about to start. The event will take place in Johannesburg from 29th to 31st of May.
During the exhibition many topics on emergency medical filed will be discussed, and one of the speakers who will participate in this congress is Professor Andreas Engelbrecht, Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Steve Biko Hospital of Pretoria, as well as Adjunct Professor at the Division of Emergency Medicine at the University of Pretoria, South Africa.
We got in touch with him and we discussed about toxicology, cases of envenomation and relative medications. It is not so difficult to come up with a poisoning. Because of a snake bite, or maybe because of a plant or some mushroom. Causes can be several and various. Prof. Engelbrecht explained us how to treat such emergencies.
