This is a type of application “OD Help” I researched that is not quite ready yet, however very interesting and could save lives once it reaches widespread adoption and use. The application is aimed at making Narcan, (generic name Naloxone) to heroin users that are overdosing. It can even be attached to a breathing monitor and alert authorities/assistance when a user is overdosing. They hope to launch it very soon and just received another 40,000 in funding. Hopefully, this app or something like it will save the lives of many and help us deal with the Opioid epidemic.
