    Should an ambulance be called to a conscious person lying on a sidewalk and babbling, when alcohol can be sensed?




    1 Answer







    Yes, because you don't know:
    How he ended up on the ground. If he had a seizure, or if he fell and injured himself, or pretty much anything besides lowering himself gently, he could need medical attention;

    If alcohol overdose is his actual problem. What if he was carrying a bottle of whiskey home from the store and fell on it when he had a stroke? What if it isn't booze you “sense,” but ketoacidosis? What if he really had only one beer, but he tripped on the sidewalk and hit his head?

    You probably aren't a doctor, ER nurse, or Paramedic. You definitely aren't a series of diagnostic tests. Call an ambulance.
