Learning About Allergies and Asthma

Hello, my name is Rodney Turner. Welcome to my website about allergies and asthma. As a kid, I could not go through the spring months without suffering from back to back asthma attacks. The asthma attacks usually started when my pollen allergies flared up. As doctors linked these two conditions, I was given medication to better control my attacks and improve my health. On this site, I will explore the link between allergies and asthma, plus talk about the treatments available for both of these conditions. Please feel free to visit my site daily to arm yourself with the knowledge you need to overcome allergies and asthma. Thanks.

Why Ketamine Use Should Be Left To Medical Professionals

Going into a surgery can be a scary experience, but knowing that the doctor is a skilled surgeon can make the process not as scary. Anesthesia is another part of surgery that makes the process much more bearable; anesthesia makes many surgeries possible. One type of anesthesia is called ketamine. This is a central nervous system sedative. Doctors and veterinarians use ketamine for surgeries. It is possible to get and use ketamine as a recreational drug. This article is going to address how ketamine works and some of its effects, and why only healthcare professionals should administer ketamine.

How It Works

Ketamine was first put in use during the Vietnam War, and was used as a battlefield anesthetic. The drug practically takes over the entire brain. The main thing that ketamine does is block specific pain receptors in the brain. Ketamine effectively separates your mental state with your physical body. This is what allows the doctors to perform surgeries without sending the body into shock. At low doses the drug sedates and eases pain. Ketamine is used to help other sedatives work and to reduce the use of addictive painkillers. When taken in high doses the drug can send an individual into a coma.

Recreation

Ketamine has started to be used as a recreational drug. If taken at the right dosage ketamine can induce a warm tingling feeling through the body. It can also cause a relaxing sensation and can cause hallucinations. This can appeal to partygoers. The effect is usually felt in approximately five minutes and will usually last twenty-five minutes. During this time the individual can experience a vast array of these appealing feelings.

Is It Safe?

Many people want to know if ketamine is safe. Doctors use ketamine every day in the hospital. They are trained to use the drug, and have equipment to treat any adverse affect that the drug may cause. In a hospital the drug is not only safe but effective. At a party, ketamine can be extremely dangerous. At high dosage a person can fall into a coma. The drug that you buy on the street may be ketamine and another drug crossed, and can give your body a terrible reaction. Ketamine can be injected, swallowed, or snorted, giving different effects, but the ultimate result of these effects can be disastrous. There are too many variables in taking ketamine as a recreational drug to consider it safe. Let the use of ketamine stay in hospitals, with healthcare professionals that know to use the drug properly.
