Lexi-Comp, Inc., a provider of clinical information for healthcare professionals, has released a new handheld software package, Lexi-TOXICOLOGY SUITE™. Designed especially for first responders and emergency personnel, the intuitive mobile application offers quick access to the point-of-care information needed for acute treatment of patients during toxicologic urgencies and emergencies.

The package includes Lexi-Drugs®, Lexi-Interact™, Lexi-Tox™, Household Products, Lexi-Lab & Diagnostic Procedures™, and Lexi-CALC™. Cross-linking within the databases allows quick access to antidotes/decontaminants, drug-to-drug interaction analysis, toxicology-specific calculators, and related lab tests, critical values, and test result interpretation.
