  1. Great discussion, we kind of starting talking about alternatives in light of drug shortages but I think listeners will get a lot out of it

  2. Enjoyed listening to this conversation about drug shortages and alternatives.

  3. I added the first of a series on this show at Do Drug Shortages Really Impact EMS? – EMS Office Hours.

    This does raise some valid questions that EMS is generally not good at answering.

  4. More recent commentary on drug shortages is over at RogueMedic.com
