It is intended as an initial treatment of the symptoms of organophosphorous nerve agent or insecticide poisoning; definitive medical care should be sought immediately. Read More
AtroPen Auto-Injector Atropine is commonly classified as an anticholinergic or antiparasympathetic (parasympatholytic) drug. More precisely, however, it is termed an antimuscarinic agent since it antagonizes the muscarine-like actions of acetylcholine and other choline esters. Atropine inhibits the muscarinic actions of acetylcholine on structures innervated by postganglionic cholinergic nerves, and on smooth muscles, which respond to endogenous acetylcholine but are not so innervated Read More

Morphine Auto-Injector C-II (morphine sulfate injection) Morphine sulfate occurs as white, feathery, silky crystals, cubical masses of crystals, or white crystalline powder; it is soluble in water and slightly soluble in alcohol. Morphine has a pKa of 7.9 with an octanol/water partition coefficient of 1.42 at pH 7.4. At this pH, the tertiary amino group is mostly ionized, making themolecule water soluble. Morphine is significantly more water soluble than any other opiod in clinical use. Read More
