Antidotes - 解毒剤 -
|Grace :||I’m glad the paramedics were able to save the day of the patient just in the nick of time.|
|Bella :||They administered Naloxone as a nasal spray to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.|
|Grace :||It’s a good thing the patient’s 12-year-old son called 911 immediately when he noticed his father was having trouble breathing.|
|Bella :||The emergency vehicle has kits containing vials and ampules of Naloxone and atomizers, collapsible tubes of Calcium gluconate, and vials of Deferoxamine to antagonize poison incidents.|
|Grace :||Actually I had just replenished their supplies as they were runnning low of Naloxone.|
|Bella :||Upon their arrival, the patient wasn't breathing, so they used an air mask to restore air flow before administering the drug via the nose.|
|Grace :||With these antidotes on our emergency vehicles, we are able to reverse the effects of almost any overdose in a matter of minutes.|
|Bella :||Ambulances respond to all medical calls, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so we need to ensure all antidotes are in stock.|
|Grace :||That’s true.|
