Loop diuretic. Furoesmide, Bumetanide Ethacrynic Acid, Torsemide. These are commonly known as water tablets, and are the drugs that you may have been on via a drip post cardiac arrest. People often complain about their water tablets as they have to visit the toilet much more frequently, they are called diuretics.

Amiodarone. This drug is given during cardiac arrest to treat specific cardiac arrthymias, mainly ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. The Resuscitation Council recommends that the first treatment for ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia should be electrical defibrillation.

“While the listed drugs have theoretical benefits in selected situations, no medication has been shown to improve long term survival in humans after cardiac arrest. Priorities are defibrillation, oxygenation and ventilation together with external cardiac compression.” — ARC Statement. VASOPRESSORS. Rationale. TBC; Adrenaline. 1mg IV/IO Q 3min; part of ALCS

Further drugs for post-cardiac-arrest care (e.g. inotropes, vasopressors, anaesthetic agents, antibiotics) should be available readily, according to local critical care policies. Keeping resuscitation drugs locked away - this problem was addressed in detail in 2005 by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain in a revision of the Duthie Report (1988) ‘The Safe and Secure Handling of Medicines’.

The guidelines are available at www.resus.org.uk. Cardiac arrest can be associated with ventricular fibrillation, pulseless ventricular tachycardia, asystole, and pulseless electrical activity. Adrenaline/epinephrine 1 in 10000 (100 micrograms/mL) is recommended by intravenous injection repeated every 3–5 minutes if necessary.

Give adrenaline 1 mg IV (IO) after the 3 rd shock for adult patients in cardiac arrest with a shockable rhythm. Repeat adrenaline 1 mg IV (IO) every 3-5 minutes whilst ALS continues. Antiarrhythmic drugs . Give amiodarone 300 mg IV (IO) for adult patients in cardiac arrest who are in VF/pVT after three shocks have been administered.

Cardiac arrest is a sudden loss of blood flow resulting from the failure of the heart to pump effectively. Signs include loss of consciousness and abnormal or absent breathing. Some individuals may experience chest pain, shortness of breath, or nausea immediately before entering cardiac arrest.

To get high without using drugs, pick your favorite kind of exercise, like running, swimming, rowing, or biking, and try pushing yourself for a prolonged or extra difficult session to release endorphins, which make you feel naturally high. Alternatively, try breathing techniques to feel naturally high.

Drugs interfere with the way neurons send, receive, and process signals via neurotransmitters. Some drugs, such as marijuana and heroin, can activate neurons because their chemical structure mimics that of a natural neurotransmitter in the body. This allows the drugs to attach onto and activate the neurons.
