Wasted in One Sydney City ER
« on: July 20, 2015, 03:57:47 PM »
http://m.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/opinion/drugs-like-ice-seriously-mess-with-your-brain-says-emergency-department-head-dr-gordian-fulde/story-fni0cwl5-1227447915501

An icey Saturday, lots of drugs and alcohol. The second patient on Saturday morning was a 38-year-old female under the influence of crystal meth — Ice.

She was very agitated and having paranoid delusions.

She thought she was being sprayed with an unknown substance by people

She was rubbing and licking this substance off.

It apparently tasted sweet — Ice seriously messes with your brain.

As common with amphetamine use she was constantly scratching all over leaving marks on her skin.

At 1:20am, a 20-year-old male who had taken 3 ecstasy pills (which are amphetamines as well) was brought in by ambulance very agitated with his heart racing.

Nine minutes later a 25-year-old drinker raced into a telegraph pole badly splitting his lip and bending his nose.

Very bloody and painful.

At 2:03am, ambulance and police brought in a 48-year-old female who had been running in and out of traffic loudly using colourful language.

A couple of minutes later a very distressed 40-year-old female was rushed in by her family as she was choking on a piece of food.

At 3:20am, an 18-year-old teenager came by ambulance.

He had been drinking heavily the last two nights but now was vomiting blood with severe abdominal pain — a very serious bad combination!

At 3:22am, a 22-year-old male arrived and was very agitated, very worried with palpitations and chest pain.

He had been taking cocaine and ecstasy — both these drugs stress the heart.

On examination his heart rate was dangerously fast and he was dizzy — a stage before a possible heart collapse.

In winter and the cold weather we see many patients who have not been drinking enough water!

The have become dehydrated and extremely painful kidney stones form.

Even in winter you should drink at least one litre of water daily.

Hot teas and soups are great!

I always forget that when it's spring / summer here in the Northern Hemisphere, it's fall / winter there. 

Loved the part about tea and hot soups.  LOL.  Another instance where green and herbal teas can cure.  I can hear the health gurus now.

i guess if you really want to see what makes a city tick then just go to the busiest inner-city hospital and hang around the ER on a Friday or Saturday night !

surely it'd be a zoo of one sort or another - and if not, you live in a very quiet place.
