Serum ethanol and glucose concentrations should be monitored and the dose of ethanol adjusted, as necessary, to maintain a therapeutic ethanol concentration. Hemodialysis rapidly removes both EG and glycolic acid (5–7). Elimination half-lives are reduced to approximately 3 hours for each, as compared with 19 and 10 hours, respectively, with alcohol dehydrogenase inhibitor therapy alone (1,2,7,9).

In addition, disulfiram may cause inhibition of dopamine-βb-hydroxylase, blocking the conversion of dopamine to norepinephrine, which may lead to hypotension. Myocardial ischemia is usually only associated with severe hypotension. In general, deaths attributable to DERs are extremely rare. Manifestations of DER usually begin within 30 minutes of ethanol exposure and may last for several hours. 2). Often, the source of ethanol may be elusive because ethanol-containing products in the home are ubiquitous.
