Chemsex First Aid

Chemsex First Aid is a 20 page PDF booklet that covers general First Aid practices for some specific chemsex-related emergencies. (Produced by David Stuart and Ignacio Labayen De Inza – Sep 2018).

It includes information on how to make judgement calls, and when not to, when to call an ambulance, as well as some tips to help avoid some of the most common emergencies that can happen in chemsex environments.

This guide is not a comprehensive harm reduction resource. The booklet focuses on emergencies and First Aid that might be applied in them.

The booklet is divided into 4 sections:

  1. GHB, GBL related emergencies
  2. Crystal methamphetamine and mephedrone/3MMC/4MMC/cathenone related emergencies
  3. Other emergencies that can happen in chemsex environments
  4. A summary of First Aid Situations
