Protocol for Amyl Nitrate Inhalers
Our County / MABAS Division Hazardous-Materials Response Team has been issued 192 doses of Amyl Nitrate...I believe these to be the inhalants...Along with this, the state & our local EMS Systems do not have a protocol for the use and administration of this drug..Anyone out there have a protocol or could offer some guidance on this.....I did contact our medical control and they stated that they are working on developing a medical protocol, but they are not sure when it will be finished. I asked about using the meds, and they would not give an answer....So I thought I would take it upon myself to develop a protocol and submit it to Medical Control for approval....Any help or ideas would be appreciated...Thanks again!!
