We have a great show for you this week including a news item that looks at a paramedic who came up with a rather novel way to fight drug abuse of prescription drugs. Check it out in this week’s news. Then, after today’s news items, we check out a medication review for EMS providers as we check in to the use and proper administration of epinephrine in the field. That, of course, follows up on our segment on allergic reactions we covered in last week’s episode. All of that is coming up next here on the MedicCast.
