Flagler OARS & AdventHealth Sponsor NARCAN® Event in Palm Coast, Fl
By: Flagler OARS
"If there are prescription opioids in your home, NARCAN® Nasal Spray should be there, too," cautioned Deborah Mcnabb, Advent Director of Community Benefit.
Flagler OARS is a naloxone provider through a generous grant from the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) Overdose Prevention Program (OPP).
The DCF Overdose Prevention Program (OPP) is designed to reduce opioid overdose deaths by providing access to FDA-approved emergency opioid antagonists, as defined in s. 381.887(1)(d)
NARCAN® Nasal Spray is used to temporarily reverse the effects of opioid medicines. The medicine in NARCAN® Nasal Spray has no effect in people who are not taking opioid medicines. Always carry NARCAN® Nasal Spray with you in case of an opioid overdose.
Use NARCAN® Nasal Spray right away if you or your caregiver think signs or symptoms of an opioid overdose are present, even if you are not sure, because an opioid overdose can cause severe injury or death.
Signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose may include:
Get emergency medical help right away after giving the first dose of NARCAN® Nasal Spray. Rescue breathing or CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation)
The signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose can return after NARCAN® Nasal Spray is given. If this happens, give another dose after 2 to 3 minutes using a new NARCAN® Nasal Spray device and watch the person closely until emergency help is received.
