From the CDC: http://www-nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov/Pubs/811155.PDF

Fatal Crashes and Fatalities Involving Alcohol-Impaired DriversDrivers are considered to be alcohol-impaired when their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08 grams per deciliter (g/dL) or higher. Thus, any fatality occurring in a crash involving a driver with a BAC of .08 or higher is considered to be an alcohol-impaired-driving fatality. The term “driver” refers to the operator of any motor vehicle, including a motorcycle.

 

In 2008, 11,773 people were killed in alcohol-impaired-driving crashes. These alcohol-impaired-driving fatalities accounted for 32 percent of the total motor vehicle traffic fatalities in the United States.

 

Children: In 2008, a total of 1,347 children age 14 and younger were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes. Of those 1,347 fatalities, 216 (16%) occurred in alcohol-impaired-driving crashes. Out of those 216 deaths, 99 (46%) were occupants of a vehicle with a driver who had a BAC level of .08 or higher. Another 34 children age 14 and younger who were killed in traffic crashes in 2008 were pedestrians or pedalcyclists who were struck by drivers with a BAC of .08 or higher.

 

Drivers: In fatal crashes in 2008 the highest percentage of drivers with a BAC level of .08 or higher was for drivers ages 21 to 24 (34%), followed by ages 25 to 34 (31%) and 35 to 44 (25%).

Teen who has been binge drinking since age 14?

July 15th, 2010 by admin

Teen is 18 now. What tests could be done to check the damage done from teen binge drinking? What/where would the damage likely to be?  PS: I am not talking about myself (I know this is a stupid thing to do). I know how some people get on this judging you lol.

 


You can do a liver profile to check the liver enzymes to make sure it’s functioning correctly. An echocardiogram can detect any damage done to the heart (such as alcoholic cardiomyopathy). Kidney function tests can be used to check for kidney failure. Lipid profiles would be in order as well…excessive drinking can throw of the triglycerides. Psychiatric tests could be used to check cognitive function. Hope this helps….

Underage Drinking – What Can Parents Do?

September 13th, 2009 by admin

IS YOUR TEEN BINGE DRINKING ?

 

 

Alcoholism is a disease – a chronic, progressive, fatal disease if NOT treated. If you suspect that your teen is participating in underage drinking then perform a home alcohol test as soon as possible.

It is your child or loved one and you could be preventing a serious addiction, traffic accident or possible physical harm. There are several home testing kits available that can be purchased right online and used in the privacy of your own home.
