The whole article is nonsense perpetuating a life threatening OD protocol
‘Ontario HIV Treatment Network’ Talked with them Nov 2 Quote “OHTN does not stand behind any protocol mentioned” Well don’t forget to breath you may get murdered. Should know better than publish this, anyone with a compromised immune system suffers any breathing emergency and does not receive prompt rescue breaths pre existing condition maybe compounded. Article perpetuates the fear of disease transmission. http://www.ohtn.on.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/RR108_Opiod-Overdose.pdf
Oct 26, 2016 ‘Globe and Mail’ NICE VIDEO RESPIRATORY ASSIST as per all the hundreds of causes breathing emergency, chest compression’s would kill any breathing emergency https://youtu.be/zUO2TeeKC1E
Tens of thousands lay persons in Ontario taught all the signs of breathing emergency, then trained to give chest compression’s only. Over a million people presented to Ontario hospitals per year with respiratory problems. Less than 10 thousand out of hospital cardiac arrests per year Ontario.
234 Doctors, other health care professionals and myself signed a letter to Ontario’s Premier Kathleen Wynne and Minister of Health Dr. Eric Hoskins about Ontario’s life threatening intervention.

You’re pet eats a poison or drug Veterinarian will give respiratory assist (rescue breaths) and antidote. Not kill them with chest compression’s, why do we allow this to happen to our women and children
Signs of OD and proper treatment, rescue breathing any respiratory emergency. Continue rescue breathing until Naloxone takes affect and patient breaths adequately on their own.
Please share widely, stop needless suffering. Ontario’s clinicians etc. need counseling.
