Overdose and the Recovery Position
« on: January 27, 2016, 05:33:16 AM »
I wanted to post a link to the recovery position since we were talking about overdose.
This is a very important step in keeping someone alive and making sure that they stay that way.

And make sure that you have a plan if someone should overdose and discuss it with those you use with.
Better to be safe than sorry.

Here is the link: It gives step by step instructions. Maybe print it out if you can and put it somewhere where you can get to it fast.

The recovery position is to ensure someone doesn't aspirate their own vomitus, correct? Lying on their side, or something like that?

@candy good link I've seen more then one SITCH where someone's life was attempting to be saved where this was not considered, it's easy to overlook important shit when the shit gets real.
