DRUG OVERDOSE - How To Save Someone's Life

STEPS TO TAKE:

1) Make sure the scene is safe

2) Check for Responsiveness (If they don't wake up call 911 and get an AED)

3) Then, check for pulse and breathing simultaneously for at least 5 seconds but not more than 10 seconds

4) If they have a pulse but they are not breathing - GIVE RESCUE BREATHS

(1 Breath Every 5-6 Seconds for an Adult)

*MAKE SURE YOU CONTINUE TO CHECK FOR PULSE EVERY 2 MINUTES OR SOONER IF SOMEONE ELSE IS THERE TO HELP.

*CHECK THE CAROTID PULSE WITH 2 FINGERS JUST BELOW THE TRACHEA
