Methamphetamine (contracted from N-methylamphetamine) is a potent central nervous system (CNS) stimulant that is mainly used as a recreational drug and less commonly as a second-line treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and obesity. [26] Due to its strong stimulant and aphrodisiac effects and inhibitory effect on ejaculation, with repeated use, these sexual encounters will sometimes occur continuously for several days on end. [9], Bleach exposure time and concentration are correlated with destruction of methamphetamine. With the increasing ability of the medical community to resuscitate people with no respiration, heartbeat, or other external signs of life, the need for another definition of death occurred, raising questions of legal death. This might seem like a stupid question – it’s that thing between your ears, the grey matter, the master controller of the nervous system that sits atop the spine and under your skull.

[102][103] Activation of TAAR1 increases cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) production and either completely inhibits or reverses the transport direction of the dopamine transporter (DAT), norepinephrine transporter (NET), and serotonin transporter (SERT). [9] It is soluble in diethyl ether and ethanol as well as miscible with chloroform. gamma power in V1 and higher-order brain areas, including hip-pocampusandprefrontalcortex,andinducedfunctionalbinding at low gamma frequencies across these structures. [26], According to a National Geographic TV documentary on methamphetamine, an entire subculture known as party and play is based around sexual activity and methamphetamine use. [118] Methamphetamine is also well absorbed following inhalation and following intranasal administration. A persistent vegetative state means the person has lost higher brain functions, but their undamaged brain stem still allows essential functions like heart rate and respiration to continue. If the patient is an organ donor, his other organs typically are maintained with a respirator until they can be collected. They suggest the side effect has been exaggerated and stylized to create a stereotype of current users as a deterrence for new ones. [33][34], Methamphetamine users and addicts may lose their teeth abnormally quickly, regardless of the route of administration, from a condition informally known as meth mouth. [146][147] Shortly after, methamphetamine was synthesized from ephedrine in 1893 by Japanese chemist Nagai Nagayoshi. Persistent Vegetative State: What's the Legal Difference. Often brain swelling has injured the brainstem, which connects the brain to the body. [21], Methamphetamine belongs to the substituted phenethylamine and substituted amphetamine chemical classes. [69][73][74], Methamphetamine addiction is persistent for many individuals, with 61% of individuals treated for addiction relapsing within one year. [4], Antipsychotics such as haloperidol are useful in treating agitation and psychosis from methamphetamine overdose. [35][36] As dry mouth is also a common side effect of other stimulants, which are not known to contribute severe tooth decay, many researchers suggest that methamphetamine associated tooth decay is more due to users' other choices. Some scientists take the higher brain approach, arguing that death of the cerebrum constitutes death of the self. Side effects were so serious that the army sharply cut back its usage in 1940. [40] The level of needle sharing among methamphetamine users is similar to that among other drug injection users. The higher brain account thus functions by identifying our personal identity with the cerebral hemispheres in some way. If the doctors believe there is little to no chance of recovery, then family and loved ones may seek a court order to remove the patient from life support (which is not necessary if the patient or someone with power of attorney has signed a "do not resuscitate," or DNR, order). [150][151] Pervitin became colloquially known among the German troops as "Stuka-Tablets" (Stuka-Tabletten) and "Herman-Göring-Pills" (Hermann-Göring-Pillen). [9] In contrast, the methamphetamine hydrochloride salt is odorless with a bitter taste. [22] Methamphetamine may decrease the effects of sedatives and depressants and increase the effects of antidepressants and other stimulants as well.

[22] Methamphetamine hydrochloride dispensed in the United States is required to include a boxed warning regarding its potential for recreational misuse and addiction liability. [118] The half-life of methamphetamine is variable with a range of 5–30 hours.

Sam Gor is primarily involved in drug trafficking, earning at least $8 billion per year. [32] Numerous deaths related to methamphetamine overdoses have also been reported as well. [50], Magnetic resonance imaging studies on human methamphetamine users have also found evidence of neurodegeneration, or adverse neuroplastic changes in brain structure and function. [note 6][69][74] These sex addictions (i.e., drug-induced compulsive sexual behaviors) are associated with a dopamine dysregulation syndrome which occurs in some patients taking dopaminergic drugs, such as amphetamine or methamphetamine. [140] Methamphetamine is largely degraded within 30 days in a study of bioreactors under exposure to light in wastewater. The brain also produces hormones to control individual organ function. The second question is epistemological. Verbal communication, the ability to “think in the future,” and the capacity to hold multiple tracks of complex information “on-line” at the same time, are examples of higher mental functions that are subserved by various structures in the brain. 41 (Paolin), sensitivity is 53%, but the specificity is not calculated as the article is a study of consecutive brain death patients. All rights reserved. [9] It has a melting point between 170 and 175 °C (338 and 347 °F) and, at room temperature, occurs as white crystals or a white crystalline powder. [138], Methamphetamine is a chiral compound with two enantiomers, dextromethamphetamine and levomethamphetamine. At the end of the war, it was used as part of a new drug: D-IX. However, there is another type of death, which is called brain death. ©2009—2020 Bioethics Research Library Box 571212 Washington DC 20057-1212 202.687.3885 T. gondii infects most warm-blooded animals, including humans. What is a brain? [83][84][85] A systematic review and meta-analysis from 2019 assessed the efficacy of 17 different pharmacotherapies used in RCTs for amphetamine and methamphetamine addiction;[84] it found only low-strength evidence that methylphenidate might reduce amphetamine or methamphetamine self-administration. [141], Racemic methamphetamine may be prepared starting from phenylacetone by either the Leuckart[142] or reductive amination methods. Brain Death vs. [149], During World War II, methamphetamine was sold in tablet form under the brand name Pervitin (not to be confused with Perviton, which is a synonym for Phenatine), produced by the Berlin-based Temmler pharmaceutical company. 71 (Grigg), the sensitivity is 80%, and it is also the study of a series of patients with brain death. Researchers review 200 years of documentation on how non-human primates respond to death. [sources 2] The primary metabolites are amphetamine and 4-hydroxymethamphetamine;[118] other minor metabolites include: 4-hydroxyamphetamine, 4-hydroxynorephedrine, 4-hydroxyphenylacetone, benzoic acid, hippuric acid, norephedrine, and phenylacetone, the metabolites of amphetamine. [112] SLC22A3 is an extraneuronal monoamine transporter that is present in astrocytes, and SLC22A5 is a high-affinity carnitine transporter. [38] Methamphetamine use allows users of both sexes to engage in prolonged sexual activity, which may cause genital sores and abrasions as well as priapism in men. Neonatologist Dr. Ju Lee Oei of the University of New South Wales said not only were these babies often overlooked at birth, it was not until they approached school age that concerning behavioural and learning issues really started to emerge, by which time years of treatment opportunities had been missed. Soldiers would only receive a couple tablets at a time, and were discouraged from using them in combat. [152] By 1941, usage was restricted to a doctor's prescription, and the military tightly controlled its distribution. [22] Methamphetamine may counteract the effects of antihypertensives and antipsychotics due to its effects on the cardiovascular system and cognition respectively. [163], Stimulant drug, trade name Desoxyn, street name “meth”, "Hiropon" redirects here. At very high doses, it can induce psychosis, breakdown of skeletal muscle, seizures and bleeding in the brain. [102][104] When methamphetamine binds to TAAR1, it triggers transporter phosphorylation via protein kinase A (PKA) and protein kinase C (PKC) signaling, ultimately resulting in the internalization or reverse function of monoamine transporters. The types of severe brain injuries that raise these difficult questions often fall somewhere along the spectrum of persistent vegetative state and brain death. [66] ΔFosB plays a crucial role in the development of drug addictions, since its overexpression in D1-type medium spiny neurons in the nucleus accumbens is necessary and sufficient[note 5] for most of the behavioral and neural adaptations that arise from addiction. [4] Hypertension presents a risk for intracranial hemorrhage (i.e., bleeding in the brain) and, if severe, is typically treated with intravenous phentolamine or nitroprusside. This injury cannot be reversed. [9] The hydrochloride salt is also freely soluble in ethanol and water. [102][105] Methamphetamine is also known to increase intracellular calcium, an effect which is associated with DAT phosphorylation through a Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase (CAMK)-dependent signaling pathway, in turn producing dopamine efflux. Fifty-two Australian couples who had experienced the death of at least one member of a multiple birth (twin or higher order), with at least one survivor of that birth, were interviewed about their experiences at the time of the death, and since. Microsoft Edge. Reviewing the cultural context of the evolution of brain death, an historian details reactions to the 1968 Harvard criteria. [89], According to the current Cochrane review on drug dependence and withdrawal in recreational users of methamphetamine, "when chronic heavy users abruptly discontinue [methamphetamine] use, many report a time-limited withdrawal syndrome that occurs within 24 hours of their last dose". [95] Amphetamine psychosis may also develop occasionally as a treatment-emergent side effect. Epigenetic alterations were observed in the brain reward pathways, including areas like ventral tegmental area, nucleus accumbens, and dorsal striatum, the hippocampus, and the prefrontal cortex. [19] Methamphetamine is known to possess a high addiction liability (i.e., a high likelihood that long-term or high dose use will lead to compulsive drug use) and high dependence liability (i.e. Brain death results from a major injury to the entire brain. [15] Methamphetamine was discovered in 1893 and exists as two enantiomers: levo-methamphetamine and dextro-methamphetamine. Someone who's medically declared brain dead -- meaning there is zero brain activity -- is legally considered dead. PVS can be a controversial diagnosis, since patients with locked-in syndrome are fully conscious, but similarly unable to communicate or respond to stimuli. The longer someone is unconscious, the higher the chances of death or brain death and the lower the chances of a meaningful recovery. [75] About half of those with methamphetamine addiction continue with use over a ten-year period, while the other half reduce use starting at about one to four years after initial use. [101] Methamphetamine also interacts with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), since both MAOIs and methamphetamine increase plasma catecholamines; therefore, concurrent use of both is dangerous. While dextromethamphetamine is a more potent drug, racemic methamphetamine is sometimes illicitly produced due to the relative ease of synthesis and limited availability of chemical precursors. Gene-specific DNA methylations in particular regions of the brain were also observed. But the diagnosis of brain death is much more definitive than PVS and relies on three main components: If the patient is diagnosed as brain dead, he will be declared clinically and legally dead. A critical review", "Treatment of narcolepsy with methamphetamine", "Practice parameters for the treatment of narcolepsy and other hypersomnias of central origin", "What are the long-term effects of methamphetamine misuse? [4] Due to the high lipophilicity of methamphetamine, it can readily move through the blood–brain barrier faster than other stimulants, where it is more resistant to degradation by monoamine oxidase. [38] These findings suggest that methamphetamine use and engagement in unprotected anal intercourse are co-occurring risk behaviors, behaviors that potentially heighten the risk of HIV transmission among gay and bisexual men. The durable power of attorney, meanwhile, grants decision-making authority to a trusted individual named in the document. [37], Methamphetamine use was found to be related to higher frequencies of unprotected sexual intercourse in both HIV-positive and unknown casual partners, an association more pronounced in HIV-positive participants. [118] Following IV doses, about 45% is excreted as methamphetamine and 7% as amphetamine. [156], The Golden Triangle (Southeast Asia), specifically Shan State, Myanmar, is the world's leading producer of methamphetamine as production has shifted to Yaba and crystalline methamphetamine, including for export to the United States and across East and Southeast Asia and the Pacific.[157]. [153] Due to the psychological and stimulant effects of methamphetamine, Obetrol became a popular diet pill in America in the 1950s and 1960s. Brain death: Irreversible cessation of all functions of the entire brain, including the brain stem. The organization is active in a variety of countries, including Myanmar, Thailand, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, China and Taiwan. Behavioural modelling expert and author Marvin Oka has an interesting claim to make on this seemingly simple issue – that we actually have three brains. [21] It has been demonstrated that a high core temperature is correlated with an increase in the neurotoxic effects of methamphetamine. It sometimes is confused with a coma, but comatose patients are never conscious (while someone with PVS may exhibit limited wakefulness, including eye movements, spontaneous body movements, and groaning). [21], Methamphetamine has been shown to activate TAAR1 in human astrocytes and generate cAMP as a result. Matters of life and death are decided quite literally through interpretations of the law, while certain legal documents (such as advance directives) can give you and your loved ones more options. However, there are occasional efforts to keep brain dead individuals on life support, while those in a persistent vegetative state (often referred to as "chronic wakefulness without awareness") may be allowed to die naturally if they have requested so in a living will. [115][116][117] At high doses, both enantiomers of methamphetamine can induce similar stereotypy and methamphetamine psychosis,[116] but levomethamphetamine has shorter psychodynamic effects. [22], Methamphetamine is often used recreationally for its effects as a potent euphoriant and stimulant as well as aphrodisiac qualities. [4][95] A Cochrane Collaboration review on treatment for amphetamine, dextroamphetamine, and methamphetamine abuse-induced psychosis states that about 5–15% of users fail to recover completely. Authors Asha K Vas 1 , Sandra B Chapman, Lori G Cook, Alan C Elliott, Molly Keebler. Higher-order reasoning training years after traumatic brain injury in adults J Head Trauma Rehabil. It's not impossible for PVS patients to recover higher brain functions, just extremely rare and largely dependent on the cause and nature of the brain injury. This gained greater urgency with the widespread use of life support equipment, as well as rising capabilities and demand for [55][66][72] Sufficiently overexpressing ΔJunD in the nucleus accumbens with viral vectors can completely block many of the neural and behavioral alterations seen in chronic drug abuse (i.e., the alterations mediated by ΔFosB). We first determined whether 40-Hz visual stimulation modulates neuronal activity in brain areas beyond primary V1 by performing c-Fos immunostaining as a marker of neuronal activation in C57BL/6J mice (Figure 1A). [4][22] A moderate overdose of methamphetamine may induce symptoms such as: abnormal heart rhythm, confusion, difficult and/or painful urination, high or low blood pressure, high body temperature, over-active and/or over-responsive reflexes, muscle aches, severe agitation, rapid breathing, tremor, urinary hesitancy, and an inability to pass urine. This hormone is produced to concentrate the urine in the kidneys, thus protecting against life-threatening dehydration. | Last updated May 29, 2018. It is also under the same scenario that organ donation is presented as an option in order to give life to others. [note 2] Methamphetamine properly refers to a specific chemical, the racemic free base, which is an equal mixture of levomethamphetamine and dextromethamphetamine in their pure amine forms. Methamphetamine has been shown to have a higher affinity and, as a result, higher toxicity toward serotonergic neurons than amphetamine. It is related to the other dimethylphenethylamines as a positional isomer of these compounds, which share the common chemical formula: C10H15N1..mw-parser-output .toclimit-2 .toclevel-1 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-3 .toclevel-2 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-4 .toclevel-3 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-5 .toclevel-4 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-6 .toclevel-5 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-7 .toclevel-6 ul{display:none}, In the United States, dextromethamphetamine hydrochloride, under the trade name Desoxyn, has been approved by the FDA for treating ADHD and obesity in both adults and children;[22][23] however, the FDA also indicates that the limited therapeutic usefulness of methamphetamine should be weighed against the inherent risks associated with its use. The vast majority of deaths, approximately 99%, are cardiac deaths. [131][132][133][134] Chiral techniques may be employed to help distinguish the source of the drug to determine whether it was obtained illicitly or legally via prescription or prodrug. [161][162] Methamphetamine has been placed in schedule II of the United Nations Convention on Psychotropic Substances treaty. [109][110][111] TAAR1 activation by methamphetamine in astrocytes appears to negatively modulate the membrane expression and function of EAAT2, a type of glutamate transporter. [89] Infants born to methamphetamine-abusing mothers may experience a neonatal withdrawal syndrome, with symptoms involving of abnormal sleep patterns, poor feeding, tremors, and hypertonia. [20][21] Excitotoxicity, oxidative stress, metabolic compromise, UPS dysfunction, protein nitration, endoplasmic reticulum stress, p53 expression and other processes contributed to this neurotoxicity. A good example is the brain’s production of anti-diuretic hormone (ADH). [66][69][73] Since both natural rewards and addictive drugs induce expression of ΔFosB (i.e., they cause the brain to produce more of it), chronic acquisition of these rewards can result in a similar pathological state of addiction. [98] The phenomenon of "unopposed alpha stimulation" has not been reported with the use of beta-blockers for treatment of methamphetamine toxicity. Suffering from a drug hangover and looking more like a zombie than a great warrior, he had to recover from the side effects." [159] Sam Gor is alleged to control 40% of the Asia-Pacific methamphetamine market, while also trafficking heroin and ketamine. [22][118] When taken orally, 30–54% of the dose is excreted in urine as methamphetamine and 10–23% as amphetamine. [35] According to the American Dental Association, meth mouth "is probably caused by a combination of drug-induced psychological and physiological changes resulting in xerostomia (dry mouth), extended periods of poor oral hygiene, frequent consumption of high-calorie, carbonated beverages and bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching)". Please try again. [22] The pH of gastrointestinal content and urine affects the absorption and excretion of methamphetamine. Brain death can be a concept that some people find hard to grasp. [40], Doses of 200 mg or more of methamphetamine are considered fatal. The highest prevalence of illegal methamphetamine use occurs in parts of Asia, Oceania, and in the United States, where racemic methamphetamine and dextromethamphetamine are classified as schedule II controlled substances. Google Chrome, [84] There was low- to moderate-strength evidence of no benefit for most of the other medications used in RCTs, which included antidepressants (bupropion, mirtazapine, sertraline), antipsychotics (aripiprazole), anticonvulsants (topiramate, baclofen, gabapentin), naltrexone, varenicline, citicoline, ondansetron, prometa, riluzole, atomoxetine, dextroamphetamine, and modafinil. [26] The crash following the use of methamphetamine in this manner is very often severe, with marked hypersomnia (excessive daytime sleepiness). Visit our professional site », Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors [143] The intermediate formyl amide is then hydrolyzed under acidic aqueous conditions to yield methamphetamine as the final product. Ventilators, feeding tubes, and other medical technologies have made it much easier to sustain the lives of those with severe brain injuries. [sources 1] A methamphetamine overdose will likely also result in mild brain damage due to dopaminergic and serotonergic neurotoxicity. [162], It has been suggested, based on animal research, that calcitriol, the active metabolite of vitamin D, can provide significant protection against the DA- and 5-HT-depleting effects of neurotoxic doses of methamphetamine. Functions of association cortex: higher-order sensory processing, motor planning, language processing/production, abstract thought, etc. [154] Currently, methamphetamine is sold under the trade name Desoxyn, trademarked by the Danish pharmaceutical company Lundbeck. The threat is from debates about whole brain, higher brain and brainstem definitions, and when death occurs, although they acknowledge that there has been little public interest in these academic controversies. [22], Abuse of methamphetamine can result in a stimulant psychosis which may present with a variety of symptoms (e.g., paranoia, hallucinations, delirium, and delusions). None of the patients recovered. [82], As of December 2019[update], there is no effective pharmacotherapy for methamphetamine addiction. May-Jun 2011;26(3):224-39. doi: 10.1097/HTR.0b013e318218dd3d. [22][39], Besides the sexual transmission of HIV, it may also be transmitted between users who share a common needle. [22] Due to the effect pH has on absorption, proton pump inhibitors, which reduce gastric acid, are known to interact with methamphetamine. [55][66][68] Once ΔFosB is sufficiently overexpressed, it induces an addictive state that becomes increasingly more severe with further increases in ΔFosB expression. [76], The frequent persistence of addiction suggests that long-lasting changes in gene expression may occur in particular regions of the brain, and may contribute importantly to the addiction phenotype. [135] Chiral separation is needed to assess the possible contribution of levomethamphetamine, which is an active ingredients in some OTC nasal decongestants,[note 3] toward a positive test result.
