Earlier this year, the American College of Medical Toxicology and American Academy of Clinical Toxicology released a position statement on transdermal fentanyl exposure. The position, based on the opinion and clinical experience of ACMT and AACT task force members, states "the risk of clinically significant exposure to emergency responders is extremely low."
The position statement received extreme criticism as well as support from law enforcement professionals around the country. Recently, the Office of Health Affairs and the Occupational Safety and Health Program compiled information on fentanyl facts and myths for the DHS workforce.
