When drinking 3 beers and two rum and cokes before
Patient :When drinking 3 beers and two rum and cokes before 9 pm. Then having 1 shot of tequila at 12:15. My blood alcohol level was .29 at 1:45am. I did have trauma to my head in two locations causing skull fractures from being assulted at 12:45. I did drink water from 9-12. How was by blood alcohol level so high at 1:45? Could the trauma cause my organs to slow down forcing the alcohol back into the blood stream?
