Surgeon General Advises: US Homes Need Narcan to Aid in Opioid Overdose Epidemic
Posted on April 09 2018
Recently U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams stated in a news article that “There are people out there who think naloxone doesn’t make a difference: you’re just going to go on and misuse substances again,” Adams said. “That would be like me saying I’m not going to do CPR on someone having a heart attack because if we save them, they’re just going to go out there and eat fast food and be back here all over again.” In addition to that he also mentioned how US homes need Narcan to aid in the opioid overdose epidemic.
Mountainside Medical Equipment carries a number of Naloxone kit options, most of which come preassembled with all of the supplies needed to safely administer Naloxone. Since most overdoses do occur in the home this will enable those in the household to provide lifesaving assistance much quicker than if the patient had to wait until getting to a hospital to receive treatment, which might be too late for it to be effective.
If you or someone you know is struggling [with addiction], you should be prepared with Naloxone. Also, attending training on how to use it is recommended.
All of our Naloxone kits come discreetly packaged and shipping is hassle free.
