The female friend was calm and curt with the operator in the beginning of the call that was released on Thursday. Demi is not identified in the call. Narcan is used to overcome the effects of an opioid overdose.
A representative for the singer said Tuesday evening that Lovato was awake and recovering with her family.
As the ambulance approaches Lovato's friend asks the dispatcher if the ambulance can turn off their sirens in an apparent attempt not to attract the attention of neighbours.
At one point, the caller says "no sirens, please", but the operator makes it clear that turning them off isn't an option, saying, "This is definitely a medical emergency for her".
"No no no, this is a medical emergency. I don't have control over that", he responds.
We'll keep you posted on her situation.
Lovato was scheduled to appear on Fox game show Beat Shazam on Tuesday night at 7, but Fox sent out a statement that "in light of recent reports, we have made a decision to replace the episode of Beat Shazam with another all-new episode".

Considering that Lovato's rep has spoken out about his client's hospitalization and has shared that "some of the information being reported is incorrect", it's understandably hard to put together the pieces of the superstar's recent drug use at the time of this writing.
When paramedics arrived, Lovato was still unconscious.
The singer herself has also reportedly refused to tell hospital staff what she had taken. TMZ initially reported that she overdosed on heroin, however a source confirmed to InStyle that the substance-which is still unknown-was not heroin. She has spoken out about her battles with drugs and alcohol over the years, and she's become a role model for young women and men who have faced their own issues.
