Drinking Pattern Calculation
A forensic alcohol expert can make a drinking pattern calculation for a person given sufficient information. Typically a person provides the type and number of drinks containing alcohol that have been consumed over a period of time, their gender and body weight, and an estimated BAC can be calculated. The estimate sometimes cover a wide range, but will give a very good estimate of a maximum BAC. These calculations can be very useful in an impaired driving case before a provincial court or an IRP adjudicator if the maximum possible BAC is less than 80 mg%.
