Then in this week’s tip segment pharmacist Amanda Lent joins us again for another EMS pharmacology segment. This time around we’re talking about some problems with some ways anaphylaxis protocols are written, especially the improper use of epinephrine. That’s all coming up later on in this episode after the news.
