Ranges are approximate and vary with the drinker:Following are ten snapshots of increasing drunkenness and impairment as blood alcohol concentration increases. Ranges are approximate and vary with the drinker:BACEFFECTS.02 Drinkers begin to feel moderate effects..04 Most people begin to feel relaxed, mildly euphoric, sociable, and talkative..05 Judgment, attention, and control are somewhat impaired. Ability to drive safely begins to be limited. Sensory-motor and finer performance are impaired. People are less able to make rational decisions about their capabilities (for example, about driving.).08 There is a definite impairment of muscle coordination and driving skills..10 There is a clear deterioration of reaction time and control Vomiting usually occurs, unless this level is reached slowly or a person has developed a tolerance to alcohol. Drinkers are drowsy. - Drinkers display emotional instability, loss of critical judgment, impairment of perception, memory, and comprehension. - Lack of sensor-motor coordination and impaired balance are typical. Decreased sensory responses and increased reaction times develop. The vision is significantly impaired, including limited ability to see detail, peripheral vision, and slower glare recovery.

11 5/1/ nd MEDLOG Co.10 BAC AND GROWING IMPAIRMENT BACEFFECTS.15 This blood-alcohol level means the equivalent of 1/2 pint of whiskey is circulating in the blood stream Drinkers are disoriented, confused, dizzy, and have exaggerated emotional states. Vision is disturbed, as is perception of color, form, motion, and dimensions. - Drinkers have increased pain threshold and lack of muscular coordination. Drinkers stagger or lose the ability to walk and have slurred speech. Apathy and lethargy are typical Drinkers display general inertia, near total loss of motor functions, little response to stimuli, inability to stand or walk, vomiting, and incontinence. Drinkers may lose consciousness or fall into a stupor Symptoms are complete unconsciousness, depressed or absent reflexes, subnormal body temperature, incontinence, and impairment of circulation and respiration. Death may occur at.37% or higher. BACs of.45% and higher are fatal to nearly all individuals.
