What is Naloxone?

Naloxone, also known as Narcan, is a medication used to rapidly reverse opioid overdose. It effectively restores normal breathing and consciousness by binding to opioid receptors in the brain.

It is a life-saving tool that can be administered via injection or nasal spray by first responders, healthcare professionals, or trained bystanders.

How Do You Administer Naloxone?

Call 911: Call 911 or have another person do so while you administer the Naloxone.

Prepare the Nasal Spray: Remove the Naloxone nasal spray from its packaging and ensure the nozzle is clear.

Position the Person: Lay the person flat on their back. Tilt their head back slightly to help open the airway.
Administer the Spray: Hold the nasal spray with your thumb on the bottom of the plunger and your first and middle fingers on either side of the nozzle. Insert the nozzle into one nostril until your fingers are against the person’s nose. Press the plunger firmly to release the dose of naloxone into the person’s nostril. The spray should be administered quickly and completely.
Repeat if Necessary: If the person does not respond within 2-3 minutes after the first dose, administer a second dose in the other nostril.
Monitor and Seek Further Assistance: After administering naloxone, monitor the person’s breathing and consciousness. Remain with the person until emergency medical help arrives. Provide reassurance and support as needed.
