What are the signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose?


So, the signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose are, one, you can’t get the person to respond to a pain response. So, you take your knuckles and you rub them firmly on their sternum. If they do not respond to that, that’s a key indicator that they’ve overdosed. Another indicator would be blue or pale-ish lips and nails. Another indicator would be their breathing. Is it really shallow? Is it raspy? Is it paused so there’s no breath sound and then a big gasp? Those are all indicators that somebody has overdosed.
