Intranasal Medications are Here !!
As you may know, in the 2013 Protocols, ODEMSA, along with its partners in the Medical Direction Committee and EMS Community, added the Intranasal route of medication administration. This route is acceptable in both the adult and pediatric population and is considered, in most settings, to be just as effective, less time consuming, and safer for both patients and providers than the intravenous method. Using first pass metabolism and ease of administration, emergency medications can get into the patient and provide the desired effect quicker. This route utilizes high concentration-low volume solutions of the approved IN medications through a nasal mucosa atomizer attached to a syringe.
