These are not the only two times epi 1:1000 has been given IV. It is, in fact, a not uncommon error. Whether the medic is a fool or an excellent medic badly screwing up, the fact is the drug is right there in the kit waiting not just to save a life, but to take one.

I’ve done a number of true anaphlyaxis calls over the years, and I can you, I would not want to look in my bag and find the epi gone. Because if the epi wasn’t there, those patients would be dead, and if the epi was missing because I failed to check my gear, then I would deserve life without parole.
