Treat yourself to some Lucious Lingerie from Alcohol can be a deadly poison As people are getting into the summer festive mood, St John would like to remind friends and family of what to do if they are concerned about a person who is intoxicated. Life-threatening alc- ohol poisoning occurs most commonly in young people who drink undiluted spirits quickly. In this setting it is possible for a person to drink a potentially fatal dose of alcohol before they start to show signs of intoxication -- and then become rapidly unconscious. Just 300ml of undiluted spirits is enough to kill a young person. A person who is uncon- scious from alcohol poisoning who reaches hospital alive has a high chance of survival. A per- son who is unconscious from alcohol poisoning who is left alone has a high chance of dying. Shake their shoulder and shout at them -- if they wake they are not unconscious. They need someone to stay with them and look after them. If they do not respond to a shake and shout they are unconscious. Lay them on their side, call an ambulance, stay with them and keep them on their side. Remove vomit if it blocks the front of the mouth.
