Formal Name: Emergency and Overdose Drug Testing

Also Known As: Drug Testing; Drug Screen; Poison Testing; Toxicology Assays

Emergency and overdose drug testing is ordered for single drugs or groups of drugs by an emergency room (ER) doctor to detect, evaluate, and monitor a drug overdose. A drug overdose may be caused by a variety of prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications, illegal drugs, and household substances. Once ingested, these compounds are typically metabolized by the liver over a period of time and then excreted in the urine.
