sympathetikeyFA says, "euphoria, disinhibition, hyperactivity, distorted sensory and time perception, bruxism.
Lifethreatening effects include hypertension, tachycardia, hyperthermia, hyponatremia, serotonin syndrome."
So I think they wanted you to see Sinus Tachy and jump for MDMA. Idk why Ketamine couldn't also potentially be correct though.+22019-06-04T22:59:47Z
amorahI picked ketamine because it said no diaphoresis. But if you need to find a reason, I guess the half life of ketamine might rule it out. Remember from sketchy, ketamine is used for anaesthesia induction, so probably won't keep the HR and BP high for 8 hrs. In fact, its action is ~10-15 mins-ish iv. +52019-06-07T23:20:51Z
yotsubatoBecause the NBME is full of fuckers. The guy is probably dehydrated so he cant sweat anymore? +92019-06-16T12:30:36Z
fulminant_lifeyou wouldnt see tachycardia with ketamine. It causes cardiovascular depression but honestly i saw " all-night dance party" picked the mdma answer and moved on lol+62019-06-16T22:41:01Z
monkdKetamine acts as a sympathomimetic but oh well. NBME hasn't caught on to ketamine as a drug of recreation :)+2019-06-23T21:03:22Z
dashou19Take a look at why the patient has pale and cold extremities.
"Mechanistic clinical studies indicate that the MDMA-induced elevations in body temperature in humans partially depend on the MDMA-induced release of norepinephrine and involve enhanced metabolic heat generation and cutaneous vasoconstriction, resulting in impaired heat dissipation."
drzed@sbryant6 you're both saying the same thing. Ketamine has a direct negative inotropic effect on the heart, but it is also a sympathomimetic. You are both correct. +2020-02-06T17:59:40Z
paperbackwriter@drzed Can you please site that? As far as I understand ketamine has a sympathomimetic effect on the CV system --> increased chronotropy and BP. I also don't see how they're saying the same thing. One person said "stimulation" and the other said "depression"+2020-02-17T03:42:53Z
