Highest I've ever seen was a .404g% bac. Guy showed up for court hammered and the judge held him in contempt and ordered a breathalyzer.

Alcoholics can get that high.

When I had the breathalyzer in my truck, I would frick around with it a bunch. It stops registering BAC after .35%. I beat that many times and continued drinking. I used to bring 2 fifths of Jack and a 2-liter bottle out with me. It would all be gone before 3-4am, and I would have mixed a couple of beers in there. Definitely couldn't do that anymore. Liver is screwed now after soaking up all of those years worth of whiskey

Not really.

A breathalyzer is a device designed and calibrated for lower ends/more realistic levels of intoxication.

At this level of drunkenness, his ketone levels were probably pegging the sensor.

Also, you have to consider he still had alcohol in his stomach waiting to be absorbed when he was stopped by the cops, and his BAC went up en route to the hospital.

They also self-calibrate before you blow in them by taking in surrounding air.

That is why they are supposed to make you wait 20 minutes before blowing

This is correct. It is actually fairly common for the preliminary test to be lower than the actual test.

That is called auto zeroing.

That isn't calibration.

Nothing can "self calibrate."

Partially (it's mostly for other related reasons), but alcohol takes longer to absorb as well.

Not like 20 minutes after you drink all that alcohol is in your system.

This dude must down a bottle of Jack everyday for breakfast. I'm just shocked someone can drink that much. Let alone find their car and start driving.

That is stupid....shouldn't they want to find out how drunk you were when you were actually driving?

No with that BAC the headache wouldn't kick in until quitting time.

No, you could have just swigged mouthwash or just taken a shot so it will be fresh on your breath

That is why people get out of the car and chug liquor when they are driving drunk. Cops can't say if you were drunk before you drank the boose in front of them

Doubtful, I have had patients who had a higher BAC than that and were awake and talking.
