Determination of blood alcohol in persons with blood diseases and secondary distrubances of the blood pictures

, : Determination of blood alcohol in persons with blood diseases and secondary distrubances of the blood pictures. Mmw, Munchener Medizinische Wochenschrift 117(14): 563-566

The distribution of alcohol in the blood is determined by the water content of serum and whole blood. In order to verify the conversion factor qu for the establishment of the "blood alcohol concentration" from the alcohol content of the serum, the serum protein content, the hematocrit and the water content of the serum and whole blood were determined in 246 persons suffering from diseases in which disturbances of the water content of the blood could be expected. It was shown that the conversion factor of 1,20 used in the routine practice of the alcohol laboratory is too large. Calculation of blood alcohol concentration from the serum alcohol using the conversion factor of 1,20 leads to a levelling of differences of about 10%.
