In response to the ongoing crisis of opioid abuse in the United States, the Red Cross has developed an online course to help educate the public about how to recognize and respond to opioid-related overdoses. The online course takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and features content that highlights some of the telltale signs of an opioid overdose, and the types of care that can be administered, depending on how responsive the affected individual is at the time.
Specifically, those who take the course are trained in how to administer naloxone treatments, such as Narcan Nasal spray, drugs that have immediate intervention effects that provide temporary relief from overdose symptoms.
