Inhalants of Abuse: Core Concepts

Course Description:
This course is part of our Core Concepts Series, which reviews potentially impairing drug classes from three scientific perspectives: Pharmacology, Forensic Toxicology, and Clinical Toxicology. A future supplemental series will add law enforcement and DRE perspectives for each drug class as well.

The pharmacology lecture for this course will explore mechanisms of action for inhalants, where known, and discuss other relevant parameters – such as their rapid absorption and subsequent inhibitory effects. Then in the forensic toxicology lecture, learners will explore the instability of inhalants, important considerations for minimizing their volatile nature in forensic samples, behavioral effects, and other forensic aspects of inhalant impairment. The course will be wrapped up with a clinical toxicology lecture that discuss the abuse patterns of inhalants in youth and clinical effects of inhalants on the body.
