Details: one of main characters, heavy drinker with a tendency to drug use falls in coma because of acute alcohol intoxication, with renal insufficiency and possibility of brain damage. I would like to know everything about treatment and medical equipment used in such cases at that time. Would he had any chances of recovery?
I found some texts about both alcohol intoxication and alcohol coma, but all described the treatment used today. Only one was about treatment in late 60s (text dated to 1966), but I suppose that within a few years it may have been changed. In addition, I have no idea how in those days looked equipemnt, which would be used in such a situation, and I care for relatively accurate describing it.
Thanks in advance.
