In this week’s Inside EMS podcast quick clip, hosts Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson discuss a study that looks at whether epinephrine really works.

“One milligram of 1:10,000 solution every three to five minutes may not necessarily be what they need,” Cebollero said.

Cebollero also mentions that after almost 50 years, we’re late in getting to such a study.

“And therein lies the problem,” Grayson said.

In the United States, getting permission for such a study has always been problematic, and continues to be problematic today, he said.
