Service Description

The Blood Ethyl Alcohol test, commonly referred to as the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test, measures the amount of alcohol (specifically, ethanol) present in the bloodstream. Ethanol is the primary type of alcohol found in alcoholic beverages, and its concentration in the blood is directly related to the amount of alcohol consumed. Collection Method: Blood Draw Specimen Type: Whole Blood Test Preparation: No preparation required When and Why a Blood Ethyl Alcohol Test May Be Ordered A Blood Ethyl Alcohol test can be ordered in various circumstances: 1. Legal or Forensic Reasons: Law enforcement officials might order the test if a person is suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol. Many jurisdictions have legal limits for BAC when operating a vehicle, and exceeding these limits can lead to legal penalties. 2. Medical Evaluations: In a hospital setting, if a patient presents with signs of alcohol intoxication or if there's a suspicion of alcohol poisoning, this test can be performed to confirm the diagnosis. 3. Treatment Programs: Individuals enrolled in alcohol treatment or rehabilitation programs might undergo periodic BAC testing to ensure they are abstaining from alcohol consumption. What the Blood Ethyl Alcohol Test Checks For The Blood Ethyl Alcohol test checks for the concentration of ethanol in the blood. Results are usually given as a percentage. For instance, a BAC of 0.08% (often the legal limit for driving in many jurisdictions) means that there are 0.08 grams of alcohol for every 100 milliliters of blood.
