Questions your doctor may ask to check for alcohol poisoning

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose alcohol poisoning

  • Do you have nausea or vomiting?

  • Do you have headache after consuming alcohol?

  • Do you feel guilty when drinking alcohol?

  • Do you have headaches or does your head feel heavy?

  • Have you told by others that you are heavy drinker?

Treatment for alcohol poisoning

This requires emergency medical care. Patients should be kept in a sitting position or lying on their side while waiting for care to arrive. Treatment is mostly supportive, e.g. IV fluids to prevent dehydration, correction of blood sugar or related metabolic problems, and airway monitoring. Sometimes a breathing tube is needed if a person cannot breathe safely under the influence of alcohol.
