Manitoba RCMP use naloxone kits for first time  


Manitoba RCMP have used a nasal naloxone kit for the first time to save someone from an opioid overdose.

Last Friday, they responded to a call of a possible fentanyl overdose at a residence.    Officers arrived and found an unconscious man with a very low pulse and severe breathing difficulties.


They administered the first dose of nasal nalaxone as they waited for an ambulance.   While the victim improved, the breathing difficulties continued, and the officers administered two more doses in recommended intervals. The victim quickly stabilized and he was transported to hospital. He has since been released.


Suspected fentanyl was seized at the location.


To protect the identity of the victim, the RCMP will not be providing any specific details about the location of the incident.
