    Very good article. I wanted to ask for more information on the cannula with intubation. Nothing, I have found suggests a flow rate. Care to enlighten us so we may enlighten our medical directors?

      Check out my previous article on EMS1.com about apneic oxygenation.

    The “Dose vs Overdose” thing has been going on for years. We responded to one the other night. “Female took heroin, now unconscious, but breathing normally”. Being on the nod is the desired effect and junkies spend good money trying to get there. I’ve never seen a reason to ruin that, but what do I know?

    Then again, I’d legalize Heroin and outlaw Narcan, but that’s just me.
