Breath Alcohol Tests
Breath alcohol testing devices, commonly known by the term for one type of device – Breathalyzer, measure how much alcohol is currently in the blood.
Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is measured by blowing into a breath alcohol device. The results are given as a number which shows the level of alcohol in the blood. The legal limit for being considered impaired while driving is .08.
However, US Department of Transportation regulations consider a .04 a positive alcohol test requiring removal from driving or other safety-sensitive tasks. A .02 under DOT regulations can require removal from tasks for a certain period of time.
A drug test is a technical analysis of a biological specimen, for example urine, hair, blood, breath air, sweat, or oral fluid/saliva – to determine the presence or absence of specified parent drugs or their metabolites. Major applications of drug testing include detection of the presence of performance-enhancing steroids in sports, employers screening for drugs prohibited by law (such as cannabis, cocaine and heroin) and police officers testing for the presence and concentration of alcohol (ethanol) in the blood commonly referred to as BAC (blood alcohol content). BAC tests are typically administered via a breathalyzer while urinalysis is used for the vast majority drug of testing in sports and the workplace.
