attempted suicide by eliquid! and other stuff. good cites.
so i was looking into info we cant talk about here on hi strength nicotine and stumbled across this which was pretty shocking to me,
Attempting to commit suicide with E-Liquids: Witless! » Zwischen und hinter den Zeilen
from the blog:
""""""""An article concerning three suicide attempts was published in the scientific journal “Clinical Toxicology” by Lars B. Christensen et al. in May 2013.
Case 1. Woman, age 36, admitted to a psychiatric ward, who had ingested 20 mL of nicotine liquid labelled as containing 18 mg to commit suicide. The Poisons Information Center was contacted 10 minutes after intake.
What is surprising is even though the patient ingested 360 mg nicotine, she presented no symptoms.
Medical treatment: The patient was admitted to the emergency ward for treatment with activated charcoal.
Case 2. The same woman as in case 1 was admitted to the emergency ward after ingestion of 50 mL of nicotine liquid labelled as containing 30 mg of nicotine/mL, to commit suicide.
What is very surprising is even though the patient ingested 1500mg nicotine, two hours after ingestion the symptoms present were abdominal pain, nausea, and voluminous vomiting.
Medicinal treatment: Activated charcoal and observation for 6 hours.
Case 3. Male, age 13, ingested 3 mL of nicotine liquid, no information about concentration, to commit suicide. Fifteen minutes after ingestion symptoms were nausea and shivering.
Medical treatment: Activated charcoal and 1 hour after ingestion symptoms were decreasing.
Three cases… In one case the patient ingested 1500mg nicotine and thus more than 25 times the presumedly lethal dose of 30 to 60 mg. The only symptoms were nausea, abdominal pain, shivering and voluminous vomiting.""""""""""""
the article continues and has a lot of good info.
so lesson is don't give your crazy friends ejuice . and keep it locked up from the brats, but vape on!
