Canadian Study Suggests Hyperventilation for Treating Alcohol Poisoning

In a recent study conducted in Canada, researchers have found that hyperventilation with the use of a device can rapidly metabolize alcohol and eliminate it faster than conventional treatments. With an oxygen regulating device, the test was conducted on five adults which resulted in the alcohol being metabolized three times faster than what the liver takes for its breakdown. Although the sample needs further testing, researchers find it promising for saving lives.
