Good morning doctor, Thanks for your concern. First observe the condition of the patient. Like his behaviour and odour from his breathing. Examine the eyes . If the person had taken alcohol then his pupils will be mid dilated and react sluggish to light. Then do the further investigations to confirm for MLC. Alcoholic beverages such as beer, wine and liquor break down differently in each person’s body. The substance is absorbed into the bloodstream through the stomach and the walls of the small intestines, affecting the kidneys, bladder, liver, lungs and skin. It takes time for alcohol to leave your system. On average, it takes about one hour for the body to eliminate one standard drink. Individuals who have higher tolerances to alcohol, such as people with alcohol addiction, may eliminate alcohol more quickly. The more you drink, the longer it takes for alcohol to leave your body. One standard drink, which is equal to 12 ounces of regular beer, will generally raise a 150-pound adult’s blood alcohol content to between 0.02 and 0.03. However, the affect that one drink will have on the percentage of alcohol in your blood can vary greatly according to a complex group of personal factors. Factors that determine how long alcohol stays in your body include liver size, body mass and the amount of alcohol consumed. A small amount of alcohol is removed from the body through sweat, urine and respiration. Alcohol can be detected in sweat, urine and the breath for at least as long as the liver is breaking down alcohol. How Long Can Tests Detect Alcohol? Alcohol — or ethanol — tests can detect alcohol metabolites in urine, breath, saliva, sweat and blood for between two and 80 hours. Many people believe that an alcohol metabolite called ethyl glucuronide can be detected by ETG tests for about 80 hours. But a 2007 study published in the journal Alcohol and Alcoholism found that ETG tests failed to detect alcohol more than 26 hours after consumption. Most drug tests detect alcohol for between two and 24 hours. Hair tests can detect alcohol for up to 90 days. Urine tests can detect alcohol for between 12 hours and 24 hours. This length of time usually depends on how recently and how much you drank. Breathalyzers can detect alcohol in your breath up to 24 hours after drinking. Saliva tests can detect alcohol two hours after consumption, and hair tests can detect alcohol for up to 90 days...thank you. Hope you got me..
Thank you doctor
