More signs of alcohol poisoning and what YOU can do

  1. 1. By Carter Babb
  2. 2.  If someone is confused about where they are or what’s going on, it may be a sign they’ve had too much to drink What YOU can do: Always stay with the person. It is never a good idea to leave someone alone who may be in danger of alcohol poisoning
  3. 3.  If someone who has been drinking continues to dip in and out of consciousness and is unable to communicate effectively, you need to get help What YOU can do: Continually revive the person if they are passing out. Make sure they are staying awake until help arrives.
  4. 4.  If you notice someone starting to look unusually pale or see their skin turning a shade of blue, it is a pretty good bet they are at high risk of alcohol poisoning. What YOU can do: Continually monitor the person’s breathing levels. If you know CPR, be ready to use it.
  5. 5.  If someone is vomiting uncontrollably, you need to call 9-1-1 immediately. This is an extremely dangerous situation as the person may suffocate from inhaling their own vomit. What YOU can do: Make sure you turn the person on their side. This will prevent them from choking in the event of excessive vomiting.
  6. 6.  Do NOT give the person food or liquid to “sober up” – This will only give them more substance to throw back up and increase the risk of choking on vomit.
  7. 7.  Do NOT give the person a cold shower in the attempt to help them “wake up” – the shock of cold water could cause unconsciousness
  8. 8.  Do NOT exercise the person in ANY way to help them “walk it off” – this can increase the danger of the developing an irregular heartbeat
