Regarding the Opioid Toxicity Medical Directive:
Is there a recommended amount or scale that we should consider giving, or should we always administer the maximum dose of 0.8 mg?
A dose written in ALS PCS is not excessive and should be used.
You can always patch to BHP to discuss a treatment plan for your patient.
If you suspect carfentanyl use, and you have given your first dose and there's no change with your patient, please patch to BHP early to discuss a specific treatment plan for your patient.
Please ensure proper ventilation and oxygenation is maintained throughout.
