Don't snort hard!
Took this piece of misinformation out:
- Snort (not inhale) drugs sharply through straw. This is not snuff (which is inhaled); you need to snort the drug far into your nose. You may elect to snort into both nostrils, or just one. The advantage to snorting in one nostril is that you may leave the other free to breathe, which is often necessary when you snort a large amount of material, as with cocaine.
Remember guys, just because they snort hard in the movies doesn't mean you should do everything you see on tv.DrSmiles 14:06, 13 October 2010 (EDT)
I always misunderstood isufflation. Recently i was told that insufflating only purpose was to get the sniffed substance into the lungs, i thought it was meant to get it ino the nose, so that mucous membranes absorb it and load it in the blood stream. When I realized that it goes into the lungs I said OBVIOUSLY, but I also went a little afraid of what happens with all the other solids you get there. do they all get into the blood stream? how do you get rid of all that? is there something that can be really dangerous to get there? I think this could be a little things to discuss there don't you?.
once i finished in an hospital sayin "cocaine OD" to the doctor and he went to hear my lungs with the esthetoscope. wtf is insufflating? lungs or nose?.
Nothing gets into your lungs. The substance is absorbed into the bloodstream through the mucous membranes in your nose.
As for the doctor, listening to breath sounds with a stethoscope is done on pretty much every patient in an ER. Roboshit 12:55, 1 November 2010 (EDT)
