Fentanyl has become a significant concern as a synthetic opioid present in various forms (e.g., powder, pill/tablet, liquid), posing different on-scene challenges for emergency responders.

According to the DEA, “fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 80-100 times stronger than morphine,” and it is known by street names such as Apace, China Girl, China Town, China White, Dance Fever, Goodfellas, Great Bear, He-Man, Poison, and Tango & Cash. Fentanyl is cheaper and stronger than illicit opioid pills or heroin, with one kilogram of fentanyl costing about $8,000 compared to $80,000 per kilogram for heroin.
