Demi Moore was rushed to the hospital on Monday night when friends found her semi-conscious and having symptoms of a seizure. TMZ reported that Moore was doing whip-its, or nitrous oxide also known as laughing gas that offers a cheap, quick high.
The redacted tape of the 911 phone call was released by Los Angeles officials on Friday, in which Moore is described as convulsing, semi-conscious and burning up.
The call begins with confusion on the dispatcher's side, as the male dispatcher cannot determine the proper department field the call belongs to. The phone is then passed from the initial caller, who described herself as a friend, to another female voice.
Here is a full transcript of Demi Moore's 911 call on Monday. Some of the words are inaudible. You can also listen to the call below, courtesy of TMZ.

Female voice: She smoked something. It's not marijuana, but similar to incense, and [she] is having convulsions of some sort.
Operator: Are you with the person at this time?
Female: I'm actually in the other room.
Operator: You gotta be next to her so I can ask some questions. We have paramedics on the way. How old is she?
(A confusion erupts about the age as the female caller questions others how old Moore is as the operator asks how old she is roughly. The caller finally answers 49.)
