A new paper published by the CDC further corroborates America's intensifying opioid abuse crisis through an emerging trend in EMS provider administration of Naloxone.

​The paper, "Multiple Naloxone Administrations Among Emergency Medical Service Providers is Increasing," is newly e-published in the National Association of EMS Physicians' (NAEMSP) peer-reviewed journal, Prehospital Emergency Care.

In response to this paper of great significance to medical practitioners and lawmakers, NAEMSP President, Dr. Brent Myers said, "In the midst of an ever-worsening opioid overdose epidemic, this important study confirms that the number of cases with severe overdose is increasing. Our first responders are confronted with patients with life-threatening situations whose overdose is so extreme that they are requiring more than the standard dose of the reversal agent, naloxone. This study informs our pre-hospital providers and reinforces the need for policies to assure naloxone remains inexpensive and readily available."

The paper is available for free online
