Study Summary

Background: While medical advances for in-hospital care rapidly evolve, a mainstay of effective pre-hospital care remains the ability to treat medical emergencies such as anaphylaxis, prolonged seizure, overdose, or uncontrolled bleeding, through rapid administration of appropriate medication. Autoinjectors are used globally to deliver medications in a timely manner, often in environments where immediate access to medical facilities is limited. Rapid administration of intramuscular medication delivery is essential where oral or intravenous delivery is either not possible or ineffective. The purpose of the proposed study seeks to determine the efficiency various types of medication injection administration.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
