About Course

Description

EMS Care Chapter 44 | Naloxone – Narcan | Original Version

We begin EMS Care Chapter 44 | Naloxone – Narcan with an introduction to the subject. We subsequently explore in-depth these lessons:

  1. Opioids
  2. What is Naloxone?
  3. Guidelines for Administering Naloxone
  4. Intranasal Naloxone
  5. Intramuscular Naloxone and
  6. Role of an EMT

The Core Concepts and takeaways from this chapter include knowing how to manage:

  • Opioid antagonist
  • Reverse CNS and Respiratory depression due to opioid overdose
  • That Narcan is not effective against non-opioid drugs, and
  • First responders or bystanders can administer Narcan intranasally or through autoinjectors.
