ONLINE TRAINING - Opioid Overdose or Nerve Agent Webinar

Course Overview

Multiple federal agencies have identified an emergent emergency medicine challenge: In an emergency situation, is the presenting patient suffering from an opioid overdose or from intentional poisoning by a chemical nerve agent? This key differential diagnosis carries with it important decisions related to the deployment of protective measures for both the healthcare community and public health. To an untrained eye, the signs of opioid and nerve agent poisoning may appear similar, but the health risks to the patient and responder are different.

This webinar will describe the key differences between these two types of chemical exposures, the steps that must be taken to prevent secondary exposures to others, and the associated public health and law enforcement notifications. By the end of the hour-long webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Recall the key differences in the signs and symptoms of opioid intoxication and nerve agent poisoning;
  • Choose the appropriate personal protective equipment;
  • Describe the initial decontamination and pre-hospital treatment; and
  • List the appropriate public health and law enforcement notification when a nerve agent poisoning is strongly suspected.
