Aerosol sprays are inherently poisonous and inhaling them can be dangerous. The National Capital Poison Center warns that even one-time abuse of an aerosol inhalant can cause “sudden sniffing death,” which is caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain, leading to an irregular heartbeat and other complications.
To huff an inhalant, a rag is soaked in an inhalant and pressed to the mouth. Sniffing or snorting. Fumes are sniffed or snorted directly from an aerosol container or sprayed onto a heated surface and sniffed.
Butane and the body 40 minutes. Users may maintain the high by continuing to inhale the fumes.
HARMFUL WAY TO COPE WITH STRESS Like other forms of inhalant abuse, such as glue-sniffing, the predominant effects of muscle-spray abuse are on the neurological system, said Dr Mong. Short-term exposure to ethyl chloride inhalation may cause the person to appear intoxicated and have poor coordination, he said.
Butane is a gas used in lighters and as a propellant in aerosol sprays. National Poisons Centre toxicologist Leo Schep says it can cause drowsiness, suffocation, heart palpitations, temporary memory loss or death when inhaled, typically by “sudden sniffing syndrome”.
What are the health risks of inhaling butane?Butane is highly flammable so there is a high risk of burns or explosions, particularly for smokers.Some butane users report suffering from slurred speech and slower reactions while they are using, but find that these symptoms do not continue once they stop.
The acute (short- term) effects of ethyl chloride from inhalation exposure in humans consists of temporary feelings of drunkenness, and higher levels cause lack of muscle coordination and unconsciousness.
Results: The mean duration of ethyl chloride bottle use prior to culturing was 26 days. The average volume used per day was 1.9 mL. Each ethyl chloride bottle had an initial volume of 103.5 mL. Using the average daily volume usage, an extrapolated lifespan of each bottle was estimated at 7.7 weeks.
Exposure to butane at 270,000 ppm for 2 h was lethal to 4 of 10 mice, the average time of death was 84 min. Exposure at 310,000 ppm was lethal to 60% of the mice, and the average time of death was 65 min. No deaths occurred in mice exposed for 2 h at 130,000 or 220,000 ppm. All deaths occurred during exposure.
Exposure to ethyl chloride may occur from the use of consumer products containing it. The acute (short- term) effects of ethyl chloride from inhalation exposure in humans consists of temporary feelings of drunkenness, and higher levels cause lack of muscle coordination and unconsciousness.
Tell your doctor right away if any of these rare but very serious side effects occur (with long-term exposure): yellowing eyes/skin, dark urine, stomach/abdominal pain, persistent nausea/vomiting, unusual tiredness.
