Bibliographic information 4th Quarter 1989, No.36, p.13-15. 7 ref. Illus.
Abstract Study of the alcohol consumption of 2,280 Spanish patients, all of whom had suffered an occupational accident. 94% of the patients were men between 18 and 64, with an average age of 37. 15.4% of the patients were non-drinkers, 20.1% light drinkers, 25.6% moderate drinkers, 15.1% heavy drinkers, 13.2% overdrinkers and 10.6% were considered to be at great risk due to their alcohol consumption. No biological alterations which could be blamed on alcohol were found in 59.8% of the subjects, who had said they did not drink or were light or moderate drinkers. Various degrees of disruptions were however discovered in 40.1% of the patients considered to be heavy drinkers, overdrinkers or those at high risk.
