NaloxBox

Dr. Geoffrey Capraro has developed an emergency kit called NaloxBox that makes Naloxone publicly available to bystander rescuers. Though the first few minutes after someone overdoses are critical, Naloxone is not publicly available, even though it’s recommended to be immediately administered by the American Heart Association. NaloxBoxes allow access to medicine and rescue breath masks to the public so as to prevent brain damage or death while waiting for an ambulance.
