Homeless Health Care Los Angeles Presents The Oxygen Project

Amzeal News/10518158
LOS ANGELES, CA – HHCLA is launching The Oxygen Project, addressing the increasing number of fentanyl and other opiate related overdoses in Skid Row.

LOS ANGELES - Amzeal -- Over the last three decades, HHCLA's work has always been forward thinking, and The Oxygen Project is the latest innovation in the harm reduction movement.

Opiate overdose is a respiratory emergency, and the administration of concentrated oxygen is an invaluable tool in overdose prevention and response. The administration of oxygen can rapidly reverse this process by restoring the body's oxygen saturation to optimal levels – often within seconds. In effect, the responder becomes the lungs of the person overdosing and breathes for them until they are able to breathe on their own.
