Yes. The screenplay was based on the novel What? Dead...Again? by Neil B.Schulman, published in 1980.

The boy had an upset stomach from chewing tobacco. Before taking him to the surgery, his dad had given him some Bismuth subnitrate (Homegrown antacid) to try and settle his stomach, but he had given him too much, resulting in his face turning blue. Ben saw him looking ill, and couldn't properly detect an heart murmur, and wrongly assumed it was Mitral valve regurge because he was so used to seeing it in ER. Doc Hogue obviously knew the boy's history and knew that he just needed a can of coke to settle his stomach.
