Hydroxycobalamin and Rural Emergency Medical Services Cyanide Exposure Patients: A Cost Analysis
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The costs to a rural emergency medical services (EMS) system of a change from a traditional cyanide antidote kit to a kit containing hydroxocobalamin alone are currently unknown. The purpose of this study is to use current EMS data to calculate the costs to a rural EMS system associated with the adoption of a hydroxocobalamin protocol for the treatment of suspected cyanide exposure.
