Cheating Death: Naloxone

Mon Jul 6 | 11:59 pm
Webinar course release date: 11/7/2019
Webinar course expiration date: 11/7/2022

Opioids, used (and abused) for millennia, have become a significant cause of mortality in the U.S.  The treatment of chronic pain and widespread acceptance of opioids to treat it may have jump started the current epidemic.  The emergence of newer, highly potent synthetic opioids appears to be adding additional fuel to the fire. Between 2001 and 2016, opioid overdose-related deaths spiked by 175%, accounting for 1.5% of all American deaths. A multi-pronged approach has been largely ineffective, with hundreds of people dying every day.  Opioid overdose mortality is out of control. Death from overdose, though, is not inevitable. Timely administration of an opioid antagonist has been proven to save lives. Availability of this antidote is  rapidly expanding. The challenge of healthcare professionals is to best understand the safe use of opioids, be able to recognize an overdose, and know how to effectively treat it.
