Abstract
It is essential that a great deal of caution be applied to the interpretation of reported blood ethanol concentrations. It is the purpose of this publication to provide a guide to DND and MOT investigators in their efforts to correlate blood ethanol levels reported by Forensic Laboratories to possible causes of aviation mishaps. Methods of ethanol analysis, different concentration units, a tabulation of expected effects from given levels, and a number of precautionary interpretive considerations are presented herein.
