I'm sure propane is similar to butane, and therefore we can conclude it's both not safe for your heart, your lungs, or your brain, of course.
The propane is being absorbed through the thin lining of the lungs into the bloodstream within seconds after inhalation, from there it goes through the body in a few heartbeats. Propane, like other inhaled gases such as butane, benzene (gasoline), nitrates, and nitrous oxide, is very very dangerous, It can just stop your heart, and/or your lungs nearly instantaneously, and thats it, you suffer from a sudden sniffing death, and as the name suggests, it's sudden. If it's only your heart then a defibrillator may revive you, that is if the ambulance does come in time, but if it's your lungs too your pretty much screwed, You will live, and suffocate (which sounds very scary and painful, but you probably won't feel much), probably intoxicated for 6 minutes, afterwards when all your brain cells are done dying from lack of oxygen, you die. If your heart keeps pumping blood and lungs keep intaking air from the propane in those couple heartbeats, then your lucky, but your not safe from death yet. The propane then flows from your bloodstream to your brain, where the brain isn't getting enough oxygen, the brain needs both oxygen and glucose to function properly, without glucose, it can manage, without oxygen, it becomes panicky and desperate. Since you aren't getting oxygen, you get the same symptoms of lack of oxygen, such as burning feet, dizziness and disassociation, the same things I felt when I huffed air freshener that one time. Plus your brain figures you have something, lets see... propane? well it can't figure what the gas is, so it tries to use it to function, the result is mangled, highly disorganized brain function, and the death of brain cells. You begin to become dizzy, intoxicated, almost drunk, loss of balance, loss of judgment and proper decision making skills, as you go further you get even more disassociated, you begin to hallucinate, if you go even further and live, you hallucinate more, you begin to lose a sense of whats real and what isn't, almost like a very bad high dose hallucinogen trip, you might see a million different things, aliens, green x's, horrible things from dreams, terrible visions, this is all in your mind literally, yet your so out of it you can't tell at this point. If you go even further, you begin to fade, if you haven't already, by this point you should stop, otherwise if you have a bag over your head, a can spraying in your mouth, or any other thing like that, you'll suffocate, and die, passed out, anesthetic almost. When you suddenly stop you may have flashbacks, and you may notice a tad loss of higher mental functions... But it's better that you stay away from propane, just like I'm trying to stay away from air freshener, it's incredibly dangerous, you don't know if you could just keel over one day sniffing some gas or glue, inhalants all share that in common if you go too far. The 1st or the 10000th time can kill you, and you also begin to develop a tolerance after a while. __________________ Well now I'm back in the struggle with inhalants again, this time butane lighters and aerosol cans, my life is on the line with a knife slowly scraping away at it, and even if that line doesn't get cut in half by the knife, it ends up completely mangled and ragged.
