How Is BAC Measured?

How Is BAC Measured?

Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) is the amount of alcohol in a person’s bloodstream. BAC levels are typically measured by breath, blood, or urine tests when a person is pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving. Every person is affected differently when they consume alcohol. For such reasons, the number of drinks a person consumes is a poor measure of their intoxication level. A person’s body weight, sex, and body fat will ultimately affect a person’s BAC levels.

Below we have put together an infographic that illustrates an individual’s blood alcohol content based on their sex, weight, and number of drinks consumed.
