Reversing a Cocaine Overdose; Lipid Rescue


Johnny Windchimes:
Good day all,

For a very long time a cocaine OD was treated ad hoc with Oxygen, perhaps Benzos and crossed fingers and..... that's about it.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. 3D-printed artificial livers. I watched alcohol overdoses treated with lipid emulsions in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
