One of the issues raised during the meeting was the fact that East Midlands Ambulance Service, which traditionally allowed its CFRs to use less drugs than Staffordshire, still saw them make use of GTN - used to relieve angina - and salbutamol, for asthma attacks.
The Toronto-born hooker tested positive for the drug Salbutamol after a Heineken Cup semi-final for Munster against Toulouse on April 26 and was subsequently charged under the competition's anti-doping programme.
A statement issued by the IRFU from Australia yesterday confirmed that asthma sufferer Sheahan had tested positive for the substance Salbutamol when he gave a urine sample after the match in Toulouse last month.
The girl had been hospitalized on three separate occasions since March for heart palpitations and trembling hands -- symptoms resembling the side effects of the asthma drug salbutamol sulfate, investigators said.
Sheahan was found to have Salbutamol in his body after a Heineken Cup game in April and an independent judicial tribunal ruled the levels of the substance discovered were not consistent with the player's claim it was taken to combat asthma.
