is it about a specific situation?
I work in a costume(mascot) under extreme conditions
I work as a mascot
did you have an alcohol test?
right after work
I was extremely dehydrated and
had just exercised for 5 hours in a very
I was in my PMS cycle 7 days before menstration
how did this effect the BRAC test I took 2 hours after
exrsice and heat induced
I drank one long island tea right after work..nursed it for 2 hours
then took a test
well, both exercise and dehydration would tend to increase the alcohol concentration
but this would not help you legally or in your employment status
this is because even after exercise or dehydration you are still expected to have alcohol levels below the limits
exercise or dehydration would not allow you to have levels above the limits
I understand that.
I didn't know that it effect the blood at the time
from a personal point, you can understand that that was probably what caused you to go over the limit
I just wanted to know how it would effect the blood concentrate level
but as far as legal or employment issues are concerned it will not count as an excuse
ok i understand
it would increase the alcohol level
that is what caused you to have a higher alcohol limit with even a small consumption
sorry for that - you were just unlucky in this i guess

Yes. I still feel this is unanswered. I'm not asking for your legal opinion on how you think the legal system or my job will view it. you are not a lawyer. I am asking medicaly, how does heat and exercise induced dehydration scientificly cause the blood alcohol level to increase? And can PMS also effect it?
ok i will give you the medical answer
heat and exercise both cause blood plasma levels to fall
the volume of blood falls
this will increase the alcohol concentration as there will be more volume of alcohol in relation to the amount of plasma in the blood
at the same time urinary output will also be decreased
this will further decrease the metabolism of alcohol
this causes the alcohol concentration to go up with dehydration and exercise
the menstrual cycle though has no effect on this
any further questions? any clarifications?
That is fine. Thank you.
glad to help
