Better education is one way we help fulfill our corporate mission to reduce global alcohol abuse
Wheat Ridge, Colorado (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Lifeloc Technologies, a trusted manufacturer of portable breath alcohol testing equipment for Law Enforcement, Corrections, Educational Institutions and Personal use today released an updated Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) Calculator to assist organizations wishing to deter substance abuse.
"Better education is one way we help fulfill our corporate mission to reduce global alcohol abuse" said Barry Knott, president of Lifeloc. "Most people don't realize how rapidly the effects of just a few drinks can affect their BAC. And the last drink of the evening can raise BAC by much more than the first."
Most drink calculators estimate the percentage of alcohol in the blood based only on body weight, gender, and the amount of alcohol consumed over time. These are important factors in estimating BAC but they are by no means the only variables. Intoxication depends on additional factors including personal health, hydration, medications, body type and recent food consumption to name a few.
Unlike the old fashioned drink calculators, Lifeloc’s online breathyalyzer can estimate BAC if you switch between drinks of different alcohol concentrations. "It gives users a better idea of how their blood alcohol content will vary depending on their drinking patterns," said Sean Post, developer of the on-line calculator for Lifeloc adding, "Unlike the old fashioned cardboard Drink Wheel the new calculator also advises users what cognitive and physical impairment may be expected at different BAC levels."
Lifeloc was motivated to develop and release the online calculator based on the success of it's educational Iphone drink calculator, DrunkGuard, a free App available at the itunes store.
