What does a 150.3 blood alcohol level mean?

See below: This would be the equivalent of six standard drinks in 160-165 lb man ( more in a heavier man and less in a female of the same weight ) not allowing for the breakdown of any alcohol which is typically one drink every 60-90 mins.

What is the difference between your blood alcohol level and your ethanol level?

None - same thing: Ethanol, or ethyl alcohol, is the chemical name for "beverage alcohol," to distinguish it from other alcohols, like wood alcohol (methanol or methyl alcohol) and rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol). There is a slight difference between the blood alcohol level and the serum alcohol level (about 10%), but they are almost the same thing too. ...Read more

Depends: Your metabolism, length of time between and since last drink, if you consume food at the same time, and the type of drink may all affect blood alcohol level. 1 beer=a 6 oz glass of wine=1shot. Many mixed drinks have more than 1 shot. On average 2-3 shots or equivalent within 2-3hrs would put you over the legal limit to drive ...Read more

What are some medical conditions affecting blood alcohol level?

Liver impairment: Your liver is responsible for a huge number of jobs in the body, to include taking care of drugs & toxins (including alcohol). If liver impaired, diseased, or damaged, its ability to break down alcohol will be less. Alcohol dehydrogenase & rarely other enzymes can be missing or in short supply. Any of these would mean alcohol cannot be metabolized fully or at all & bal goes up and could be lethal. ...Read more

Could someones blood alcohol level be manipulated by eating?

No: Alcohol is metabolized by the liver. Eating will not speed up this metabolism so the blood alcohol level can't be manipulated in this way. However, eating when drinking can help with the sick feeling you may get. ...Read more

How is your blood alcohol level affected by the drinks you've had?

It goes up the more: you drink. Depending on gender and to some extent size, it goes up about 200 mg% (0.02) with each drink, also dependent on how quickly you drink, and whether it is on an empty stomach, as well as individual tolerance. About 4 drinks within one hour will result in a BAC of 80mg% (or 0.08 gms%). This can be higher in some people, especially if drinks are "chugged" - one after the other rapidly. ...Read more

Can Valium increase blood alcohol level?

DANGEROUS MIX!!: The blood alcohol level will not increase with the combination of alcohol and valium but the sedative effects of each will increase and therein lies the danger. So you can definitely worsen the impairment especially with driving etc. The bac will not increase but the problems will including the possibility of death. Do not do this! ...Read more

For the experts - might Vyvanse effect my blood alcohol level?

No, not directly.: Vyvanse can increase some digestive and metabolic processes, but it is not likely to have a significant effect on the blood alcohol level. Due to enhanced alertness, some may feel less impaired/sedated by the effects of alcohol, but this is illusionary -- excessive alcohol intake will be just as problematic. In fact, it may be worse since the vyvanse may impart a sense of misplaced confidence. ...Read more
