EMR/EMT Intranasal Naloxone Update

Scope of Practice - Intranasal Administration of Naloxone

It is critical to note that before administration of naloxone by EMRs and EMTs can begin naloxone must be added to the squad’s protocols and training in the intranasal administration of naloxone, approved by the squad’s medical director, must be given!

Two PowerPoint presentations, one with narration and one without, have been created by the EMS Division for use as the basis for IN naloxone training, but again, medical director approval and updated protocols must be in place.  The PowerPoints can be found at
