Naloxone Is Childs Play

Written by Nigel Brunsdon on . Posted in .

This short film featuring a simulated overdose and naloxone administration is to show how simple it can be to save a life. No one needs to die of an overdose. Featuring Emily Brunsdon.

Naloxone (also sometimes called narcan) is the life saving medication that reverses opiate overdoses. When this video was filmed in the UK this drug was still prescription only when it comes to supply (since 2015 it’s available via drug projects). It can be legally administered by anyone (in the same way insulin can be to diabetics).
