I don't believe you! If what you say really happened then you would not have asked the questions you have in the last few hours in the manner that you did. If you had a son and he had an allergic reaction to morphine, Narcan would not do a thing to reverse it. Narcan competes for opiate receptors and will reverse the sedative and respiratory depressive effects but not the immune response. Why you decided to make up a story like this is a mystery to me but you need to find a new hobby. Your story makes no sense to anyone that has ever spent 5 minutes working in an ER! Stick to your Halloween questions.

What Dr. in Lubbock can we have and Echocadiagram done in the office? I have a 75 year old male with heart failure that the pulse ox machine says his heart rate is between 30 and 65 beats. The cardiologist says that his heart is beating 114 beats a min. It is just that the first beat is hard and the other 2-5 are a slight beat. Enough to pick up on the 12 lead but not enough to pick up in a pulse. His feet are swelling and when we elevatethem the swelling goes down after 48 hrs but his lungs fill. When his feet swell they up his Lasix to 60 mg but it does not work for 4-5 days. Then run run run. Where can we have an echo done in Clovis, NM or Lubbock Texas?
