ring the two cyanide antidotes. The end result was the newer antidote caused a more rapid rise in blood pressure and eliminated cyanide from the blood. Research of this magnitude supports a call to action, most especially when thousands of lives can be saved.

To train first responders and emergency medical personnel about cyanide in fire smoke, the Cyanide Poisoning Treatment Coalition will host an educational Smoke Symposium on September 4, 2009 in the Dayton, Ohio area. According to instructor Dr. Donald Walsh, Retired Deputy Chief of the Chicago Fire Department, "professionals will present new pre-hospital care treatments to be considered by first responders and emergency medical personnel. There are new drug treatments on the market today that could drastically change the morbidity and mortality of fire smoke victims." Firefighters and first responders are eligible to attend, free of charge. To register, please visit www.firesmoke.org.
