    Administration of Narcan for AMS

    This came up in another thread and I want to answer it without derailing the original topic so I created this one.

    This did not happen to me but I heard the story first hand from the crew it happened to. They were dispatched to a cardiac arrest at a local motel. They had a medic student with them that day.
