As more information about Madonna’s recent health crisis comes to light, some sources assert that the pop icon’s condition was significantly worse than initially believed and that she “had a brush with death.”

According to RadarOnline, the medication is also used to treat septic shock, which is a potentially fatal illness “that happens when blood pressure drops to a dangerously low level.”
Narcan “is frequently kept in medical treatment kits of the rich and famous,” the entertainment news source claimed, adding that “[t]here is nothing at all to suggest Madonna] needed NARCAN for the ill effects of any drug use.”
According to a spokesperson for the “Material Girl” singer, she was hospitalized due to “a serious bacterial infection,” as reported by RadarOnline.
“She had spent days hooked up to a ventilator while her family was told to ‘expect the worst.’”
