Summary

App for anyone who wishes to help consumers of opiate drugs (such as codeine, fentanyl, heroin, methadone, or morphine), including family, friends, social welfare workers, and the drug consumers themselves. The app is a learning resource and training manual, preparing a user to act in the event of an overdose. Interactive audio and visual advice (assisted by large press-button options) aims to help the user manage the overdose, prior to the arrival of emergency services. The app guides the user in recognising opiate overdose, in assessing risks, in checking airway and breathing, on the recovery position, and in administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Also entitled ‘Opiate Overdose Response’ on Android.
