Would it be smarter to give the minimal dosages repeated or the max dose of Narcan?



A. The max dose is appropriate as an initial dose, don t want to waste time.
B. Only give enough to reverse CNS/Resp depression, pts can become violent when they come out of their high.
C. You never want to repeat Narcan, pts need hospital intervention.
D. Narcans side effects are minimal, so give the pt as much as possible.

This is bad medicine I think. For all the Narcan administration I have ever been part of only 1 patient has been combative. If we wake them up then they can protect their own airway.
