Alcohol-Related Diseases And Disorders

3. Alcohol intoxication

One of the most serious problems of drinking uncontrollably over a short period of timehappens when the alcohol level in the blood is high enough to affect the vital centers of the brain controlling breathing and heart rate, leading to brain damage and even death, since  it is a suppressant it leads to:

    • Loss of consciousness
    • Lower heart rates
    • Difficultybreathing
    • Slower reflexes,most importantly the gag reflex making it way easier to choke immediately
    • Lower body temperature
    • Seizures
    • Coma

If body alcohol concentration (BAC) is between 0.31% and 0.45%, it ismore likely that you will be in the emergency department if people manage to identify the symptoms  properly and quickly otherwise it will cause death in no time.
