PMID:  10418418     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Individuals who abuse illicit drugs have an increased incidence of traumatic injury, medical illness, and drug overdose. Subsequently, many of these drug abusers will require perianesthesia care. The health care professionals responsible for their care must have an understanding of the prevalence, the pharmacology, and medical complications of illicit drug use, including the potential interactions with anesthetic agents.
