Yes I helped craft them in accordance with the guidelines and feel the approach to chest compression only is the right way to go for many reasons. Happy to discuss with you at any time. Aaron Orkin (copied here) and Toronto public Health were more involved than I was as I was just the expert brought in to help out.
Cell is 4165245434 or we could set up a face to face by email if you prefer.

Subject: naloxone training
I have just found out that RESCU was part of Toronto Public Health’s naloxone protocols. I think they should be changed, as there is no scientific evidence for chest compressions only in opiate overdose.
See Attached ILCOR andAmer Heart Assoc. Guidelines 2010
Please reply ASAP

Dr. Morrison was not happy to discuss when told brining a tape recorder. She phoned the police. Get a phone call “Gary can you come to the station” “Sure be right there” Police constable “Gary I want to shake your hand you have been saving lives, bad news is Dr. Morrison wants no contact.” “Fine by me she is a nut”
Dr. Laurie Morrison just follow the instruction you wrote. She was Co-Chair AHA & ILCOR Guidelines on toxic ingestions

FEB 2016 CONFERENCE CHAT
Walk into the bar just to the left of hotel entrance. Standing at the bar Dr. Laurie Morrison ordering a Mocha. I order a coffee, Dr. Morrison pays $4.25 by credit card. Conversation L.M. “Oh cheaper than Starbucks? (it was a Starbucks).
Me “I use mine to stay awake, are you with the conference?” L.M. “Yes a lot of people here are you enjoying it?” Me “Just got here, was published in Emergency Medicine News and the CPR guidelines” L.M. “very good”
I put the article CJPH 2013;104(3)e200-4 on the bar’s counter, she gives it a glance L.M. “Yes opioid OD and Fentanyl is coming our way” Me “Am just trying to save your life” opened up to page 201 https://jgarythompson.wordpress.com/2016/08/12/response-cjph-20131043e200-4-2/ Dr. Morrison is credited in the article bottom p.200
L.M. “Yes I have seen that before, Halifax Dr.#### (I missed her name) just started doing that” Me “I have talked to Cindy MacIsaac of ‘Direction 180’ Halifax about this” L.M. “Medicine does a lot of crazy things”
Me “We have know for 5,000 years since the invention of opium OD causes you to stop breathing” We go our separate ways, she goes left towards the conference pulls out her phone calls someone”
Me I go out the front door 2-3 minutes later two security guards stand out front. I am on the sidewalk and give them a wave.
On the way home stopped at EMS station Lawrence Ave West and Jane St. Gave them copies of my article and Public Health’s “Just trying to save your life and make your job easier, EMS are the people dealing with patients (mostly non OD’s) damaged with chest compression’s they were never to receive, on a regular basis”
Next day phoned Nicole Pelletier from inside the hotel, she was with Dr. Morrison. Nicole put me on speaker phone gave my usual chat about acute respiratory failure and that I talked to Dr. Morrison at the conference. Twice Nicole asked “Gary do you have proof you talked to Dr. Morrison” replied twice sure I do have it on tape. Quote Dr. Morrison in the background “Thanks a lot Gary” replied “You are very welcome Dr. Morrison, don’t get in a car accident you may suffer a respiratory emergency and are not very likely to suffer a sudden cardiac arrest, good day.”
