Psychotic due to bath salts and methamphetamines: Emergency cesarean section under general anesthesia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The use of "bath salts" or other new psychoactive substances, otherwise known as "legal highs", is increasing. Illicit drug use during pregnancy is not uncommon. Nevertheless, literature reporting bath salts and their effect on pregnancy is scant. Besides, there seems to be no literature about bath salts and conduct of general anesthesia. This case report describes a general anesthetic for the surgical delivery of an infant to a woman under the acute influence of bath salts and methamphetamines.
