Opioid Commission: Declare a State of Emergency, Mr President

Following my moderated comments Medscape

Quote “The President’s commission is also recommending that states allow naloxone dispensing via standing orders and that clinicians be required to prescribe the overdose antidote along with high-risk opioid prescriptions.”

Statement is a wonderful idea empower layperson’s save OD’s but also other aetiologies respiratory depression. Many health districts OD protocols contraindicated, costing the taxpayer health care and patients needless suffering.

2010 American Heart Association Guidelines Part 12.7: ‘Toxic Ingestions’  http://circ.ahajournals.org/content/122/18_suppl_3/S829.full#sec-80  Quote “ventilation should be assisted by a bag mask [rescue breaths layperson italics mine] followed by administration of naloxone and placement of an advanced airway [continue breaths layperson italics mine] if there is no response to naloxone.”


“Practically every sign and symptom observed in drug overdose can be produced by natural disease, and many clinical presentations associated with natural disease can be mimicked by some poison.“

@Kim Cox Don’t suffer any respiratory emergency protocol of chest compression’s only for OD is spreading to many health districts. As my professor says “Gary humans have evolved into plants therefore hypercapnia is a very good thing.”  Bundle of laughs

My letter ‘Flaws in Toronto’s Opioid Overdose Prevention Program’ EMN 2015; 37(12):31 With hyperlinks to Public Health Ontario’s training literature http://journals.lww.com/em-news/Fulltext/2015/12000/Letter__Flaws_in_Toronto_s_Opioid_Overdose.14.aspx

Medscape ‘Naloxone for the Reversal of Opioid Adverse Effects’  http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/441915_4   Quote “All patients considered to have opioid intoxication should have a stable airway and adequate ventilation established before the administration of naloxone.”

Tens of thousands in Ontario, Canada taught all the signs of breathing emergency drug OD then trained to give chest compression’s only.  Empower laypersons what they think is a life saving technique they are eagerly following a clinicians instructions increasing morbidity and mortality any breathing emergency patient.  Increases mental and physical illness drug use and abuse loss of trust in the medical profession, addiction and harm reduction counselors, dysfunctional society. Ontario’s protocol you deny grade school science ‘How the Heart and Lungs work”

Your pet eats a poison or drug Veterinarian will give respiratory assist and any antidote, not torture them with chest compression’s only.  Why would we allow this to our women and children?

It’s a mental illness called Anosognosia a severe form of denial. Anosognosia is quite different than simple or temporary denial. It is not simply denial of a problem, but the genuine inability to recognize that the problem exists. Usually this is caused by brain damage and/or FEAR!

Agnotology is the study of culturally induced ignorance or doubt, particularly the publication of inaccurate or misleading scientific [medical] data.  Agnotology focuses on the deliberate fomenting of ignorance or doubt in society.

Not placing blame, change this protocol for the well being of all.  Stop needless suffering Google @GaryCPR more info


Ministry of Health Ontario protocol chest compression’s only

Jan 9, 2017 John Tory and Dr. Barbara Yaffe quoted “Ventilations (rescue breaths) most important” Not chest compressions which is assault and murder to any of the hundreds of causes breathing emergency

Quotes Mayor above press conference at 37 minutes Quote “When you have a CRISIS…one thing that often stands in the way…different protocols people have…that they have protocols that are well agreed upon…this person didn’t tell me that…we have a different system here…this is what causes people to lose their lives quite literally.”

April 2016 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. No response from Hoskins as of Aug 2017 read meaningless response from Premier above link.
