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.
Newly updated in 2017, our electronic-only handbook is available in downloadable PDF format for your use on any device.
