Florida EMS and fire vehicles to stock Cyanokit 5g antidote for cyanide poisoning
Date:5/29/2008

Napa, Calif. (May 29, 2008) Dey, L.P. today announced that the Florida Department of Health, Office of Emergency Operations, will stock Cyanokit 5g (hydroxocobalamin for injection) ANTIDOTE for Cyanide Poisoning in the States emergency medical service (EMS) and fire vehicles through a federal grant from the Department of Homeland Security.

In the United States, smoke inhalation is responsible for up to 10,000 civilian and firefighter deaths and more than 20,000 injuries annually. ,

"It is critical that we do whatever we can to enhance the safety of Floridas first response personnel and the victims they care for in emergencies involving potential exposure to cyanide, said Dr. Joe Nelson, State EMS Medical Director. Because cyanide poisoning acts very quickly, the immediate quick response capability that Cyanokit provides at the scene of an emergency will be critical in treating known or suspected victims of cyanide poisoning. Inclusion of Cyanokit in our EMS and fire vehicles will help protect both our emergency first responders and Floridas citizens.

Floridas stocking of Cyanokit in its EMS and fire vehicles reflects a recognition by State officials that first responders need to be prepared to treat cyanide poisoning immediately in an emergency, said Carolyn Myers, Ph.D., President of Dey, L.P. The ability to treat suspected cases of cyanide poisoning at the scene of a fire or other accident gives potential victims a much-needed measure of safety when survival ca
