Opioid Overdose Reversal Kit
Mountainside Medical Equipment
In response to the growing surge of people struggling with an addiction to heroin and other prescription drugs, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is calling for all first responders to be equipped with the life-saving drug called Naloxone, which reverses opioid drug overdoses. When administered during an opioid overdose Naloxone will combat the effects that the opioids have on the brain, bringing the individual back to life within just 2-5 minutes.
Mountainside Medical Equipment is proud to introduce the Naloxone First Responders Kit, which comes preassembled with all of the supplies that emergency responders would need to safely administer Naloxone. Since emergency responders are usually among the first on the scene, equipping them with Naloxone will enable them 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.

**Please note that the effects of the Naloxone will wear off after 60-90 minutes of being administered. Once the Naloxone wears off it is likely that the individual will resume suffering from their overdose again, which can cause them to re-lose consciousness and stop breathing again. Therefore, it is extremely important to make sure that the individual receives proper medical care as soon as possible after the administration of Naloxone.
- These all-inclusive kits are perfect for emergency responders to keep on hand where they will be readily available in situations involving drug overdoses. The kits are small and compact enough to keep in a ‘go bag’, backpack, vehicle console, and much more.
- Approved by the FDA for treating and preventing drug overdoses, Naloxone is an opioid antagonist that will quickly and effectively reverse the effects of opioid drug overdoses caused by the use of:
- - Heroin
- - Morphine
- - Oxycodone (Oxycontin)
- - Methadone
- - Hydrocodone (Vicodin)
- - Codeine
- - And other prescription pain medications
**Please note that Naloxone is an opioid antagonist. It will not work to prevent overdose deaths that are caused by using other types of drugs, such as benzodiazepines like Xanax, Klonopin and Valium, bath salts, cocaine, methamphetamines or alcohol.
Each Kit Includes:
- - One 2 ml Naloxone/needless luer-lock syringe
- - One mucosal atomization device
- - One pair of nitrile gloves
- - One CPR Face Shield
- - A use documentation card
- An educational insert
Tips for Administering Naloxone:
- - Naloxone should be administered as soon as possible after noticing that an individual has lost consciousness, is no longer responding, or has shallow breathing
- - Administer Naloxone according the instructions on the enclosed educational inserts and wear the nitrile gloves to help protect yourself
- - After administering Naloxone, use the enclosed CPR Face Shield to perform rescue breathing until the drug kicks in, reawakens the individual, and they resume breathing on their own (which should occur within 2-5 minutes of administering the Naloxone)
- - Get the individual to the hospital as soon as is possible. When the individual reawakens they will immediately start experiencing withdrawal symptoms and once the Naloxone wears off (which usually occurs after 30-90 minutes) the overdose symptoms are likely to return and the individual could stop breathing and lose consciousness again
- Use the included use documentation card to document when and where the kit was used, who it was used by, and to note any other pertinent information
