When Every Second Counts
CounterAct has developed a patent-pending, Emergency Nasal Overdose Spray Cap that snaps on top of any bottle of prescription opioid medicine.
The company is awaiting FDA approval prior to marketing, and so all descriptions are provided for reference only. Below is an explanation for its intended use:
In a typical opioid overdose emergency, it takes precious minutes for 911 emergency medical personnel to arrive on scene, administer an opioid counter agent such as Naloxone, then transport the victim to a hospital.
Some non-medical emergency responders may not have an overdose counter agent available, and may require substantially more time to obtain critical intervention.
The CounterAct Cap has an emergency opioid counter-agent nasal spray dispenser under its safety cap. No medical training is necessary to use the device.
In just SECONDS – not minutes, anyone who discovers a semi-conscious, or unconscious overdose victim can use CounterAct to instantly administer an emergency dosage of counter agent drug.
Call 911, then administer the CounterAct spray. Inform the Emergency personnel immediately upon arrival and inform them how long since the victim received the counter agent.
