Ketamine - a Psychoactive Drug

...Ketamine hydrochloride, known on the streets as Special K, is a powerful hallucinogen widely used as an animal tranquilizer by veterinarians. It was originally created for human anaesthetic, it is still used as a general anaesthetic for children, people with very poor health, and by vets. Effects from the drug are a lot like the effects of PCP. Users call the high they get from Special K "K Hole”. K Hole is described as visual distortions and users lose track of time, sense, and identity. While in the K Hole, people usually can’t move, they just stay seated or lying down during the experience. Because of these effects, it is used as a date-rape drug. Also, many people get serious injuries and disregard them because they don’t feel anything and don’t get the normal signs of pain. The high can last from a ½ hour to 2 hours. The Drug Enforcement Administration reports that users can act high for an hour but the drug can still affect the body for up to 24 hours. Short term effects of the drug are dream-like states of hallucinations. Users say they feel like they are floating or are separated from their body. Effects also include impaired attention, learning ability, and memory. The K Hole large amounts of Ketamine creates is a lot like a “bad trip” people get from LDS. Users say they feel drunk, stoned, and tripping all at once. Long term use causes bad mental and physical problems like delirium, amnesia, impaired motor function, high blood pressure, depression, and......

Ketamine

...Ketamine Description: Ketamine is a nonbarbiturate, sedative hypnotic used parenterally to provide anesthesia for short diagnostic and surgical procedures. It is also used as an inducing agent, as an adjunct to supplement low-potency anesthetics such as nitrous oxide, and as a supplement to local and regional anesthesia. Ketamine can be used concomitantly with muscle relaxants without complication because it does not provide muscle relaxation of its own. It is a fairly short-acting agent that provides a profound, rapid, dissociative state and a short recovery time. Mechanism: Although the exact mechanism of action is not known, ketamine appears to be an agonist at CNS muscarinic acetylcholine-receptors and opiate-receptors. Ketamine depresses the thalamocortical pathways involved in pain perception and has been shown to suppress spinal cord activity. Clinical effects observed following ketamine administration include a "dissociative anesthesia," increased blood pressure, and minimal respiratory depression. The patient's airway remains intact due to maintenance of pharyngeal and laryngeal reflexes. Pharmacokinetics: Ketamine is administered parenterally, either IV or IM. It is rapidly absorbed following IM injection and quickly distributed into the brain and other highly perfused tissues. The alpha phase (distribution phase) lasts ~45 minutes, with a half-life of 10 - 15 minutes. It is this first phase that corresponds clinically to the anesthetic effect of the......

...of sexual hedonism and entitlement. Though flunitrazepam (Rohypnol) is often cited as a date rape drug because of its high potency, strong effects and the ability to cause strong amnesia during its duration of action, investigations into its actual use as a date rape drug have contradicted popular belief. According to research conducted by Michael Robertson from the San Diego Medical Examiner's office and Dr. Mahmoud El Sohly of El Sohly Laboratories, test results indicated that flunitrazepam was only used in around 1% of reported date rapes according to Robertson and 0.33% according to urine lab tests done by El Sohly. In fact, the benzodiazepines midazolam and temazepam were the two most common benzodiazepines utilized for date rape. Ketamine is commonly known as: Black Hole, Bump, Cat Valium, Green, Jet, K, Kit Kat, Psychedelic heroin, Purple, Special K, Super Acid, Keller, Super C, etc. GBL or GHB are popular because "Victims may not be aware that they ingested a drug at all. GHB and its analogues are invisible when dissolved in water, and are odorless. They are somewhat salty tasting, but are indiscernible when dissolved in beverages such as sodas, liquor, or beer." Also, GBL can pass through the skin so the flavor is irrelevant. In some cases, GBL has been allegedly administered by applying it to jewelry that’s designed to break (presumably to prevent overdose). Laws imposed by the United States of America: In 1996, President Clinton signed the Drug-Induced Rape...

Hallucinogens: Life Dangering Drugs

...pressure, visual distortion, mood swings and paranoia. Examples of hallucinogen are LSD, PCP, angel dust, and ecstasy. (http:// alcoholism.about.com) Some hallucinogens distinguished and described in an online article of the ADF (Australian Drug Foundation) are LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide), PCP (phencyclidine), magic mushrooms (psilocybin), ketamine, mescaline (peyote cactus), morning glory seeds, and datura. LSD is a very powerful drug, so only very small doses are usually taken. In its pure state, LSD is a white odorless powder and comes in the form of squares of gelatine or blotting paper that have been dipped or soaked in LSD. It is also called as acid, trips, tabs, microdots and dots. Magic mushrooms are said to look much like ordinary dried mushrooms, or they come as powdered material in capsules. Synthetic psilocybin appears as a white crystalline powder. Magic mushrooms are usually eaten fresh, cooked or brewed into a 'tea'. Ketamine hydrochloride; also called as special K, K, ket, kitkat, and super K; is a white crystalline powder that can be made into tablets, or dissolved in liquid. Sometimes, Psilocybin and Ketamine are smoked with other drugs such as cannabis or tobacco. Mescaline, in the other hand, comes from the peyote cactus, Lophophora williamsii. It is also called as cactus, cactus buttons, cactus joint, mesc, and mescal. In its pure state, mescaline sulphate is a white crystalline powder. Synthetic mescaline may appear as different colored......

...to ensure we take care of any problems they may have and get them back in the fight” (Sneden). Scientists are now trying to focus more on the individual focus of the patient with PTSD and the exact type of treatment that they would benefit most from by researching the patient’s specific genotype. In his book Optimization of Research and Clinical Applications for Combat-related Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, author Seth Norrholm writes “Genotyping patients prior to beginning psychiatric pharmacological therapy….could arm physicians with the knowledge they need to make appropriate drug and dosing decisions” (23). If this research is successful patients would likely have more open treatment options to include medical marijuana, the use of ketamine, and virtual reality therapy. There are five criterion areas that are used to diagnosis PTSD (Friedman). The first is known as Stressor. This specifies whether the person has experienced a devastating event in which he or she felt threatened by death, injury, or physical integrity. The second criterion has been known to have the most distinguishing symptoms and is known as intrusive recollection. With these symptoms, individuals often relive the event and experience panic, terror, grief and despair. These symptoms can go on for a lifetime if they are not treated. In the third criterion, avoidant/numbing, the person regularly attempts to refrain from any event that may cause trauma-related stimuli. The symptoms are all behavioral,......

Anna Hope's "Gap in the Sky"

...college student residing in the heart of London. She is living a hectic life with drinking, ketamine abuse and smoking crack pipe. The lifestyle that she is living suggests that she does not take her education seriously and she also blames her parents for taking this “bloody course in the first place” (p. 3 l. 66). The narrator is third person heterodiegetic and it is internal with limited omniscience. Throughout the story Ellie’s thoughts are described, but it is not herself telling them. This is seen as the pronoun “I” is never used, but “she” is used in the entire story. Ellie is the protagonist and all of her thoughts and actions are depicted, but it is not herself describing them, the narrator is therefore heterodiegetic since it is not an actual character itself. Ellie is the only character in the story who is mentioned by name and has great significance to the story. She is also the only person whose point of view is shown and the narrator can thereby be characterized as limited omniscient with one point of view. Furthermore, on account of Ellie being a teenage girl, the language is also characterized by typical teenage slang and deviation from the Standard English. Such slang and deviation is seen multiple places as she says fucking many times (p. 2 l. 2, p. 2 l. 12, p. 3 l. 41 etc.), she also uses the word “fags” for cigarettes (p. 2 l. 33) and the abbreviation “K” for the drug ketamine. Hope has applied a certain use of punctuation in order to evoke an appropriate......

Club Drugs

...The problem within club drugs is arising. In 2008, the United States Customs and Border Protection reported 186 confiscations of MDMA. This problem increased with 2,670 confiscations of MDMA in 2012. Club drugs damage people, physically and mentally. After the use of GHB, coma and seizures can occur. If a person mixes Rohypnol with alcohol it may be lethal. High doses of Ketamine cause many problems. Examples of these problems include high blood pressure and potentially fatal respiratory problems. Drugs are abused all over the United States. Club drugs are easy to find. You can go to parties, nightclubs, and even on the streets to find them. If you look at club drugs on a large scale pattern of society, you may say the problem is that these drugs are too easy to get too. Since so many people are doing drugs then why is it wrong? Everyone talks about the good things about them instead of the bad horrific dangers of club drugs. Drugs are becoming a social phenomena and that needs to get fixed. Karl Marx believes that conflict goes on between classes. People are trying to fit in to cliques. Maybe there are groups at school/college that promote club drugs. Individuals may feel its “cool” to fit in. When groups are competing it does cause conflict. If the fraternities and sororities at a college want to have better parties they may provide more illegal items, like drugs. Everyone wants to be popular. A lot of people in this society will do a lot......

Effects of Selected Drugs

... Alcohol, Aspirin, Lidocaine, Morphine, Ketamine, and Succinylcholine are drugs used during anesthesia. These drugs are used to interrupt pain signals during surgical procedures. ~ For decades people have been using the effects of alcohol to suppress their pain. In the early 1900's a physician suggested to use intoxicating amounts of alcohol before medical procedures. Alcohol has the ability to depress the central nervous system, it slows down the brain, and delivers a certain amount of pain relief. ~Aspirin is used to treat pain due to inflammation. It also used to treat several conditions such as fever, pain, and inflammation caused by diseases. Aspirin works by blocking production of pain - enhancing neurotransmitters. ~Lidocaine is a common drug used for local anesthetic such as dental procedures and minor surgeries. Lidocaine is also used to relieve itching, burning and pain from skin irritation and inflammation. It works by blocking the pain signals sent by the nerve endings on the skin, changes signal conduction in neurons by blocking sodium channels. ~Morphine is a very potent drug that is used to relieve severe pain. It can relieve pain by silencing nerves in the spine that produce pain signals, morphine also has complex effects in the brain. Morphine can also be very addiction. ~Ketamine is an injection that is administered by a general anesthetics. It is used to maintain the airway and control respiration. Ketamine affects the nervous system by......

Amy Winehouse

...The sordid details of Amy Winehouse's final hours emerged today, with claims that she bought a cocktail of narcotics including cocaine, ecstasy and ketamine. Although the exact cause of death has not yet been released by police, it is claimed she was seen buying drugs from a dealer in Camden just after 10:30pm on Friday. The reports emerged as her family released an emotional statement in which they said they were 'bereft' by her early death. 'Our family has been left bereft by the loss of Amy, a wonderful daughter, sister, niece. She leaves a gaping hole in our lives,' they said. 'We are coming together to remember her and we would appreciate some privacy and space at this terrible time.' Winehouse was found dead at her London home on Saturday afternoon. A source told The People that she was seen buying substances, believed to be cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and ketamine leading up to the hours before her death. She is also thought to have been drinking heavily, which may have been the trigger of a lethal concoction of drugs and alcohol. The source told the newspaper: 'Amy seemed determined to have a big one on Friday night. 'She was out in Camden on Friday evening, but seemed determined to carry on the party back at her flat. 'None of us know who was with her into the early hours of Saturday. But getting out of it was clearly her main priority of the night.' Another source from one Camden pub told the tabloid that they had also seen Amy buying cocaine from a......

Date or Aguaintance Rape

...is intended to discuss the topic of date or acquaintance rape. Statictics used by the USR and NCVS as well as the strengths and weaknesses are listed. This paper also discusses the different type of drugs used in date or acquaintance rape as well as how the victim is viewed in the eyes of others. Introduction There are different types of rapes: stranger rape, statutory rape and spousal rape are just to name a few. The UCR and the NCVS view rape differently. The UCR stands for Uniform Crime Report and NCVS stands for National Crime Victimization Survey. Drugs and alcohol can play a role in date or acquaintance rape. Drugs used in date rape cases are GHB, Rohypnol and Ketamine. No victim of rape should feel that they are to blame for being raped and changes to policy are needed to address different issues of rape such as date rape. UCR STATISTIC • The URC program is a tool that law enforcement agencies in different areas and regions could report and exchange important information about crime. • In 2009, the estimated volume of rape was 2.6 percent lower than the estimated 2008 rape volume. • The rate of forcible rape was 56.6 per 100,000 in 2009. UCR STRENTH AND WEAKNESS The strength of the UCR includes: • Provides standardized crime definitions and a common metric among the 50 states. • Large amount of information and details about the Index crimes......

...1-2 mcg/kg Versed dosing 0.05-1 mg/kg Ketamine 1mg/kg Pharmacokinetics Ketamine is a racemic mixture of an R (-) and S (+) optical isomers. The S (+) isomer has been shown to be more potent than the R (-) isomer. It has also been shown to have fewer side effects than either the R (-) isomer or the racemic mixture (Kohrs & Dureux, 1998). Ketamine has a rapid onset (30 seconds), relative short duration (5-15 minutes), high lipid solubility and a low degree of plasma protein binding (12 %) (White, 1997). These properties are reflected in the following parameters from Goodman and Gillman (1996). Ketamine has a molecular weight of 238. It has a pKa of 7.5, elimination half-life of 2.3 +/- 0.5 hours, volume of distribution of 1.8+/- 0.7 L.kg-1, clearance of 15+/- 5 ml.min.kg-1. The drug is extensively metabolized in the liver via the cytochrome P-450 enzymes. Ketamine undergoes N-demethylation to form norketamine, an active metabolite that is one fifth to one third as potent as the parent drug (Stoelting, 1991). Norketamine is then hydroxylated on the cyclohexanone ring in two places. This forms hydroxynorketamine metabolites III and IV. These metabolites can be further metabolized by heat to metabolites II or conjugated to inactive glucuronide metabolites (White, 1997). The metabolites and a small amount of the drug are excreted in the urine. Pharmacodynamics Ketamine affects the CNS, producing a state of dissociative anesthesia. Ketamine appears to work at the......

Ketamine

...Ketamine is a drug that can be found in both human and veterinary medicine practices. It is a dissociative anesthetic. Ketamine is typically used as an anesthetic before surgeries or any other producers that do not require the realization of muscles. It selectively interrupts pathway of the brain in order to relieve painful sensations. Ketamine may also be used in emergency situations if a patient is suffering from severe trauma, it can also be used to supplement epidural anesthesia. Another use for ketamine would also be for the treatment of depression. When ketamine is given, usually administered in the form of an injection by a doctor, it is injected into the bloodstream and can relieve depression and suicidal thoughts and also can have affects lasting up for over a few weeks. Doctors have actually found that not only does ketamine work almost instantly; it is also very effective in patients who have failed to respond to traditional antidepressant treatment. Ketamine is very different from a normal antidepressant medication. While most antidepressants work on the neurotransmitters serotonin or norepinephrine. Ketamine focuses on a different neurotransmitter called glutamate. Ketamine blocks the receptors critical for receiving glutamate’s signals, which improves the brain’s electrical flow, resulting in reduced depression. Ketamine can also result in a state of dissociative anesthesia, making one feel a generalized sense of well being. This anesthetic effect is why...
