Please help! what happens when someone has a drug overdose?

Please help! what happens when someone has a drug overdose?

That depends on: How serious it is and what drugs or medications were taken. Overdoses are often treated initially in an emergency room. The person is monitored and often they have intravenous fluids. If they stopped breathing - a tube can be inserted to assist with breathing.

Possible, it depends: Pancuronium is a long acting paralytic that it takes a long time to reverse. After pancuronium is given, the patient is usually intubated since with pancuronium, the patient won't breath by themselves and he'll need mechanical ventilation to maintain normal oxygen levels. However, intubation is not the only way to help patients breath and other means (lma) can be used if intubation fails. ...Read more

Am I dying?

Am I dying?

We all are: A 3-word question with no details... well, life is short on Earth, regardless of whether a person lives 3 days, 3000 days, or 30,000 days. It is not length of one's life that matters, but the quality of the life lived. The goal is not to live a long life, but to live a good life. Even if a person makes it all the way to age 82, that's only 30,000 days. ...Read more
