ABSTRACT
The decrease in the arterial blood pressure induced by inactin was found to cause a reduction in the myocardial flow in the ratio of 1:1.5, whereas the arfonad-induced reduction in the arterial blood led to the decrease in the myocardial flow in the ratio of 1:1. It follows, therefore, that high inactin doses causing the fall of the arterial pressure impair the myocardial flow by 30 to 40 per cent more than docs arfonad with the same values of the arterial blood pressure. This points to a danger of using short-acting barbiturates in doses leading to reduction in the arterial blood pressure.

    The article describes benzodiazepines as the most commonly prescribed psychotropic drug. In the 1970's, prescriptions of benzodiazepines increased at an alarming rate.

    Following the screening of urine samples for a panel of drugs over a period of 1 year, a peak was observed during December 1999 and January 2000 in the numbers of samples testing positive for both morphine and barbiturates. This increase may be due to the adulteration of street heroin with...
