The Online Emergency Bag Service
We take the drama out of the crisis
About

Our Emergency bag service takes all the hard work out of holding emergency bags.

We provide a range of emergency bags each clearly marked for a specific clinical area and complete with the relevent gpbags.co.uk emergency drug administration guide.

We automatically replace each bag well within its expiry date and provide an on-line summary of each bag status.

Detailed audit trails are provided in order that bag use can be monitored and reported.

Emergency Drug Administration guideline

Regularly updated in line with national guidelines, all our emergency bags come complete with simple, easy to follow instruction cards providing point-of-use drug dosing and adminstration advice

Notes: Arguably Naloxone should be carried by doctors who give Diamorphine. More likely, however, is overdose from illicit opioid use. With its relatively short half-life the bolus dose of Naloxone can be repeated. In this group of patients the iv route may be inaccessible making the im or sc route easier and safer (see Sporer et al: 'Out-of-hospital treatment of opioid overdoses in an urban setting' Acad Emerg Med 1996;3(7); 660-7).
