WHAT IS BAC?
Blood alcohol content (BAC) is a measurement of alcohol intoxication. At different levels BAC has different impairment:
- 0.02% - 0.05%: speech/memory impairment, attention/coordination/balance impairment, increased aggressiveness;
- 0.06% - 0.3%: judgment and decision making impaired, vomiting, loss of consciousness;
- 0.3% - higher: Potentially fatal.
When using Alcohol Test Kits, avoid placing anything in the mouth fifteen minutes prior to taking the test. These can include alcohol, breath mints, food, and more.
Make sure to wait for two minutes before observing the color of the test strip or cassette. A green or blue color indicates the presence of alcohol. Results after two minutes and thirty seconds have the risk of being erroneous.
It takes two hours for alcohol to appear in your urine, and it is detectable for up to 12 hours. False positives are possible if you have diabetes, a yeast infection, urinary tract infection, or your urine is left at room temperature.
