Demi Moore

Health Crisis ...

Inhaling Nitrous Oxide

1/26/2012 6:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Demi Moore inhaled nitrous oxide       
Demi Moore
's friend called paramedics Monday night after the actress inhaled a dangerous amount of nitrous oxide ... TMZ has learned.
 
Sources tell TMZ ... one of Demi's friends who was at her home told emergency workers Demi was doing whip-its. A whip-it is a street name for a type of nitrous oxide inhalant.

The friend said she became upset when Demi had a reaction to a whip-it and lapsed into semi-consciousness.

It appears Demi had symptoms of a seizure -- after inhaling the nitrous.

A whip-it is not a common drug among people of Demi's age and social status. It's typically used by younger people who are looking for a cheap thrill.

I often have sympathy for people who have struggles with addicctions or handle crisis with sad and painful decisions. But, with the children, the support system she has...and the resources...In this case I just have to say Give me a break! This was an odd at least - Selfish at and ignorant at best - choice to gather attention and deal with problems she implemented with her own free will - as a juvenile. Demi just can't seem to grip that we all age, we all get betrayed - we all matter and then do not at one time or another. Grow up!

The seizure was probably not caused by nitrous oxide itself. It was caused by withdrawal from nitrous oxide. In other words, she has been using it for a long time and could not get enough so she had a seizure.

The affinity of n2o to Hgb is 100 times that of o2. By huffing it she is basically depriving her brain of oxygen. That is the "high" many huffers "enjoy?'. What a NO BRAINER!!!. signed, an anesthetist.

Ashton was already well known and on a hit show before he got with Demi. Stop fabricating nonsense. I used to watch him all the time on That 70's Show, and he wasn't linked to Demi. Really, she's a mess and seriously immature.
True story. My sister was at a restaurant when she came in and demanded a table at which people were already enjoying their meal. The restaurant obliged and asked the people to move for her. What a self-absorbed narcissistic ****. What's with celebrities, doesn't anybody stay home and feed the brain anymore by reading a good book?

"It's typically used by younger people who are looking for a cheap thrill." Are they talking about the nitrous or Demi?

Whip-its are for younger people and this surprises you how? She was married to a dude around her daughters' age, who had an IQ of a 10 year old. Plus she was out with her kid, who also happens to kick it with Paris Hilton, who also kicks it with people who eventually all go to rehab themselves. I am so thankful for my status in life :)
