Why heroin overdose is happening
Heroin overdose is the most common death among drug addicts. Heroin is a very strong drug that causes addiction almost immediately. It is possible to consume heroin by smoking it, snoring or on the intravenous way.
It is dangerous and highly addictive to take it in any way, intravenously is extremely threatening. Drug dealers are mixing heroin with other substances such as sugar, and addicts are injecting it into the veins. This is leading to collapsed veins, as well as other blood-related issues.
Heroin, through the blood-stream, passes almost all organs and goes directly into the brain. This drug causes tolerance and addiction very fast, almost after only one usage. Addicts are always trying to repeat that first time, therefore, increasing dose every time.
That is very dangerous because no one knows when it will be too much. A human’s organism is fragile and the high dose may cause brain damage or death.
Heroin is slowing breathing, sometimes that much that brain does not have enough oxygen. This process causes cell death and the collapse of the organism.
Heroin overdose causes death or serious damage
More than nine thousand lives were reported to be lost to drug overdoses in Europe in the last year. The number of drug-related deaths in Europe has been rising in the last five years.
Heroin overdose is a dangerous and deadly consequence of heroin usage. A large dose of heroin depresses heart rate. Also, the breathing slows to such an extent that a user cannot survive without medical help. If there is no one who may see what is happening – death is guaranteed. Help has to arrive in time.
Naloxone is a medication that can eliminate all signs of intoxication to reverse an overdose. It works by rapidly binding to opioid receptors, preventing heroin from activating them.
If the doctors manage to avoid death, brain and organ damage is certain. Heroin addicts are talking slowly, and they all have difficulties in making sentence construction. Talking, as much as thinking, is an issue to them. Their complete mental function is in clouds.
