You can use afrin or another nose spray to simulate an IN medication (again you don’t actually have to administer it). You can use a pen for IM just don’t jab it in anyone’s leg ok.

Participate in a discussion topic via canvas. If you are unable to access canvas, email a response to the following topic to your instructor.
- You and your partner are responding to an airport for an incoming aircraft due to an in-flight emergency. This is an international flight where an onboard passenger intentionally released a suspected biological agent. The only information you receive from the flight crew is that “many people are having difficulty breathing and are vomiting.” You are advised that the flight manifest indicates there are 80 people on the flight. How would you accomplish establishing the incident command system while considering the need to isolate the passengers and protecting yourself from exposure? Since a terrorist incident has occurred and a biological agent of some type is suspected, what additional resources may be needed?
