Fentanyl vs Morphine

It just seems like going back to Morphine would be like putting out a forest fire with a syringe.

Adding morphine might be a good adjunct to the pain regimen.
But you can give more fentanyl than really morphine without worrying about their resp status.
I give a lot a fentanyl in the field so I'm sort of biased on fentanyl but if you do both then that's a better idea at least to me it is.

Using set protocols and medication dosages just boils down to cook book medicine. I have been known to give a pt 25mg of Morphine without problems, if thet need it, they get it. Period.
