Encephalopathy due to Alcohol
Does anyone have citations/definitions approved by Medical Staff for the term “METABOLIC or TOXIC encephalopathy due to ETOH”? How does one distinguish a patient that may be simply be intoxicated with slurred speech and other impairments from what some CDI term “alcoholic encephalopathy”? Reviewing the literature on our site, I find no author that has published articles or provided education on Encephalopathy that has commented on the existence of “alcoholic encephalopathy”. Is this a valid condition?
