Hello Vegi, Thank you for the question.
Battery water is an acidic liquid that can cause inflammation, erosion, to sores on the walls of the digestive tract if your father takes it. Symptoms that can appear are swollen tongue / redness, sore throat, difficulty breathing, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting (can vomit blood), bloody chapter. This condition is an emergency condition that must be treated medically, there is no initial treatment that can be done by a layman. You can try calling an ambulance with the medical team to read your father to the hospital. If your father has a mental health disorder, your father cannot make good decisions for himself, including decisions related to his health. Usually in this condition the doctor will try to persuade the patient and if necessary give sedatives before being taken to the hospital. The doctor will re-examine your father's condition and perform several other examinations such as blood tests, X-rays, endoscopy, and others. The doctor will determine further treatment after knowing your father's condition. In addition to dealing with this condition, your father's depression condition should also be treated by a psychiatrist so that similar incidents do not happen again.
