What can be done about alcohol poisoning?


Answer by  Dana46 (2345)

The only actual thing to do to get over alcohol poisoning is to get the alcohol out of your system. In extreme cases requiring hospitalization, they may pump your stomach. At home, vomiting or waiting for your system to metabolize it is how it's done. While nothing will cure alcohol poisoning, keeping hydrated will help you feel better.

A person with true alcohol poisoning will need to be hospitalized. In that setting the patient will be hydrated by way of IV, monitored for respiratory failure, heart failure, and brain damage. Sometimes all treatment fails and the person dies. The way to prevent alcohol poisoning in the first place is to drink responsibly or not at all.

If somebody has alcohol poisoning, they need to go to a hospital and recieve medical attention. They will need to have their stomach pumped and be monitored. Never leave this person alone and make sure they are in the fetal position. In this situation, it is always better to be safe than sorry.

hydration, usually via IV fluids, and in some cases charcoal (drink the liquid charcoal and it induces vomiting but covers your esophagus from the bile)
