      RMKS/1. CONCERNS HAVE BEEN RAISED ABOUT THE STABILITY OF THE
      MARK I NERVE AGENT ANTIDOTE KITS (ATROPINE AND 2-PAM CHLORIDE) AND:
      ABOUT NERVE AGENT PYRIDOSTIGMINE PRETREATMENT (NA@PP) TABLET SETS
      UNDER HIGH HEAT CONDITIONS.
      2. BASED ON THE MOST RECENT DATA AVAILABLE, BOTH OF THE MARK I KI
      COMPONENTS, ATROPINE INJECTION AND 2-PAM CHLORIDE INJECTION, SHOULO
      BE STABLE AND MAINTAIN THEIR POTENCY UNDER DESERT CONDITIONS FOR A%
      LEAST ONE YEAR, OR UNTIL THEIR EXPIRATION DATE, WHICHEVER COMES
      FIRST. (DESERT CONDITIONS IMPLY AVERAGE TEMPERATURES OF 100 TO 120
      DEG F).
      3. NAPP (PYRIDOSTIGMINE) TABLETS SHOULD MAINTAIN THEIR POTENCY
 UNTIL THEIR
      EXPIRATION DATE, WHICHEVER COMES FIRST.
      4. WHILE THE EXACT STABILITY OF ANY GIVEN DOSE IS A FUNCTION OF
      THE CONDITIONS TO WHICH IT HAS BEEN EXPOSED, DEPLOYING UNITS SHOULD
      USE THE ABOVE SHELF LIVES FOR PLANNING PURPOSES. THESE MEDICATIONS
      SHOULD NOT BE STORED IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT OR IN ENCLOSED CONTAINERS
      PLACED IN THE DIRECT SUN, AS TEMPERATURES MAY EXCEED 120 DEG F FOR:
      EXTENDED PERIODS UNDER SUCH STORAGE CONDITIONS. CONCERNS ABOUT HOT
      WEATHER CONDITIONS, HOWEVER, SHOULD NOT PROSCRIBE THE ISSUANCE OF
      THESE ITEMS TO SOLDIERS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WHEN A NERVE AGENT:
      THREAT EXISTS.
