The United States has a growing epidemic of accidental and preventable deaths associated with opiod overdose—jumping six percent from 2012 to 2013, while in 2014, the loss of life from drug overdose spiked even higher to 47,000. Naloxone medication reverses the effects of heroin and prescription drug overdose by blocking receptors in the brain, temporarily restoring normal breathing and providing a chance for medical treatment. Designed specifically for emergency situations, the Naloxone OD Rescue Kit Concept includes a pressurized nasal spray for fast, reliable use and a clear, concise set of instructions.
