Just the Basics

Split Rock Room

Description: We review the indications, contraindications, side effects, and little-known trivia about SL Nitro, aspirin, Charcoal, Epi-Pen, Oxygen, Oral Glucose Gel and Albuterol.  All medications that are currently approved for BLS administration by the National Registry (and a few that aren’t).   Did you know? The same activated charcoal used for overdoses is also great for removing odor from cat litter?  And it works the same way in your gut!

Objectives:

  • List the 5 rights of administering a medication
  • Understand how to document medication administration for justification
  • List the 7 approved medications for administration by an EMT according to the National Registry.
  • List at least one indication for each medication and the contraindications for each.
