Narcan should be banned. Incidents like this wouldn't happen, and the opioid/fentanyl crises would resolve itself. People who set out on a path of self-destruction should be allowed to reach their destination.
So the mother of 3 grandmother of 7 great grandma of many whom I recently gave numerous doses of narcan should have been intubated - which is the best alternative to naloxone, and extremely traumatic and given her age and conditions probably permanent - because her dentist is an idiot and prescribed an opioid without considering the fact that she was on a fairly potent fentanyl patch for BONE CANCER?

As EMS, we don't have the luxury of judgement - there are only 2 categories, too dead and not too dead. Our job is to make sure not too dead stays that way. Everyone is someone's child, is someone's husband\wife\girlfriend\boyfriend - it doesn't matter.

I absolutely support expanding the death penalty beyond just capital murder - pedophiles, rapists, child abusers and telemarketers among others deserve the gallows as an option - but I'll be dam**d if EMS gets to be judge, jury, and Executioner.

Titrate for effect and transport. Other sources indicated additional doses were given to deliberately restore consciousness, wrong on multiple levels.
