Additional Info

There is no set alcohol level at which to code a poisoning.

This is a judgment call per Dr Garland. Levels alone do not define toxicity, especially if a patient has a chronic alcohol problem. Collectors should also look at the clinical signs and symptoms that the patient displays.
