Patient Care; Alcohol Intoxication
  • The first aid treatment for alcohol intoxication is often a dose of paracetamols or liver salts and a slow re-hydration back to normal. Nevertheless there are times when being intoxicated from drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can be serious and potentially life threatening.
  • Drunkenness increases the risk of falls and sustaining severe injuries because alcohol often slow down the body's responses and reactions. Sometimes, it is difficult to differentiate between a head injury and drunken stupor.
  • Intoxicated unresponsive persons may start vomiting or breathe vomitus. There is a substantial risk of someone choking to death or suffocating on vomit if they are lying face up.
