Manitoba has become the first Canadian province to provide paramedics for antipsychotic olanzapine for people with methamphetamine.
The Manitob Government has announced a new protocol on Monday to help the paramedics administer the endangered meth users to experience psychosis.
"Paramik has quickly seen how a person's behavior can change rapidly when using drugs," said Health Counselor, Senior, and Cameron Fries actively.
"We provide a tool for protecting patients, themselves and others by means of paramedics that provide Olanzapine administering skills."
The medication that reduces or prevents psychosis symptoms is currently used in many clinical settings.
Manitoba's paramedics should consult an overseer with an ophthalmic dyslasting tab before consenting to the patient.
"We want to celebrate the administration of olanzapine in the province as a whole in the case of methamphetamine or suspected methods," said Brent Bekiaris, President of the Manitoba Parameter Association, in a news release.
"These patients are rapidly developing paranoia and are also evaluating violent behavior, requiring additional treatments."
The protocol will be introduced at the beginning of December.
