I never noticed it while administering nitrates...but, yes, I was aware that some people cant touch the tounge to the roof of their mouth.
I guess you are talking about spray NTG? Ive never given it that way before.
We carry IV, paste, and tablets...

Nitro spray works on any MM surface, no need to fumble for pills, tiny screw caps and wont degrade to moist powder.
Its a bit more expensive then .04 tabs in a 100 ct bottle, but IMHO more than worth it.

I did have a guy tell me one afternoon that he didn't want a NTG spray because he was afraid it would make him explode. Yes, he was actually that concerned about it.


Some people are absolute morons.

we did have a guy who took a few and was banging his head against the wall trying to blow himself up. His pressure fell, then he did too. Had quite a headache from the wall and the nitro.

Actually, when we were going through First Responder training, our instructors told us to remove any patches on the subjects body as they may be nitro patches, during our EAD certification. They indicated that the charge could cause the patch to burst. Where they just pulling our crank, or is something like that really possible?

It has more to do with causing an arc between the patient and the defib pad.
The patch can block contact if the pad is over top of it.
Any kind of patch can cause it (NTG, Duragesic, Nicotine, etc)

You can burn the shit out of a patient if your pad contact is compromised.
