When do you need your stomach pumped?

I'm curious, because I only know of a few people who have needed there stomach pumped, and I know of heaps of people who have had large amounts of alcohol, but haven't gotten the pump.

Is the purpose of a stomach pump to prevent alcohol poisoning and damage?

I've been sick all day and at one point I got a pain in my stomach region, but I don't feel like I need a stomach pump, just hung over...

Yoiu'll be fine.


Just remember it next time you want to party hard. Doing it repeatedly will destroy your liver.

Getting your stomach pumped is not good! Couple of friends have had it done. It sucks.

Yeah and your brain, the brain is often the first to be damaged the worse with alcoholism. Most people don't realise because it's not a physical pain you can gauge, when your insides hurt you know something is fucked up, but when your brain has shrunken and been damaged, you have trouble with short term memory, difficulty concentrating for longer periods of time, trouble adapting to and learning new things.

I grew up with a guy who has brain damage now to the point where he is getting full time caring that while likely be for the rest of his life.

Some people can drink heavy for a long period of their lives, others aren't so lucky and doctors to this day still aren't so sure why one person can drink for 50 years without a problem where as another might drunk heavy for 2 years and become mentally handicapped.
Crazy stuff really, thankfully it's not common to have that happen from drinking but you're kidding yourself if you think regular heaving drinking does any favours, I know myself how stupid I've become after binge drinking since I was 14 and I am 23 now.

They tend not to pump your stomach these days.

They give you a charcoal shake - the charcoal soaks up all the poison or whatever in your stomach and stops it entering the blood stream.

Pumping your stomach is only done as a last resort.

We have a family member who for about 10 years of his life would drink most of the day. Once he also drunk a bottle of scotch and took a pack of sleeping pills before lying on our verandah wanting sympathy. We called the ambulance and they couldn't take him unless he went voluntarily or passed out. It took 2 hours for him to pass out and then they pumped his stomach. As a complication of that little episode, he was also shitting blood for 2 days. He said he'd never drink again after that one but a few years later he was back on the grog worse than ever.

Anyways, one day 15 years later he calls mum because he got out of bed and went straight over. We thought it was a stroke but it wasn't, it was brain damage from drinking so much. He quit the grog but now 5 years later, he's suffering from almost full dementia, hates his life and wants to die (nothing new there though). He hasn't the concentration to read, cook, watch TV or even listen to the radio so he just sits there all day picking at his fingernails and complaining.


Don't be a statistic, folks.

I think I might ease off the booze again. Don't want my already limited brain to be completely destroyed.

The first step is always to realise you have a problem...mine's gambling. I try to stay well clear of gambling because if I start I have a tendency to empty my wallet. Unfortunately it's not as easy to avoid alcohol. I think myself lucky that I've never touched the stuff.

When the doctor's stick a wide tube down your throat, into your stomach and literally pump the contents out. Makes for one very sore oesophagus!

I've had a nasty recent attack of the pokies a couple of weeks ago. Lost 17 bucks before I slapped myself silly!

But I've had drunken incidents quite often in the past, that I'm probably just going to limit myself. I admit, I did go out with the intention to get plastered, but not that plastered!

I'm not trying to use scare tactics on you mate, my dad has been an alcoholic for over 30 years. He can still do his day job, it has a routine to it and he can follow it no problem. If he had to learn a new job though, he'd be up the shitter I reckon.

I just like ya mate, you're one of the ones on here I have alot of time for and I don't want to see you throwing years of your life away on piss like I have done. I am only 23 but I regret wasting atleast a quarter of my life so far either being intoxicated or suffering really bad with some fucked up hangovers and other problems like becoming less reliable at work and have money problems. Life is a challenge enough without writing yourself off regularly.

I think it's alright to go and have a big night everynow and then, but when we focus the big nights around getting pissed we end up just having that to look forward to. That's how I feel anyway and I have met many other people, mostly men, who only look forward to the end of day or end of week drink.

Fortunately most people are passed out or anaesthetised when this occurs. If they're awake then as already mentioned, charcoal is given instead.
