The author has brought the review of published analytical methods for determining alcohol in body materials up-to- date. The review deals with analytical methods for alcohol in blood and other body fluids and tissues; breath alcohol methods; factors which may cause apparent, or real, errors in estimating BAC from breath analysis; and, proposed standards of accuracy for analytical methods which determine BAC by direct analysis of blood, or by estimation from breath analysis. Breath alcohol instruments and alcohol detector tubes are described in detail, pictures and/or schematic representations are included, and studies (made by independent investigators) of the accuracy of the methods are included.
