A breath alcohol test, using a device known as a breathalyzer, is a quick and easy way to gauge the amount of alcohol currently within a person’s system. But how does a breathalyzer test work? When someone drinks, the alcohol is carried throughout his or her body in the bloodstream. As it passes through the body, it affects each system and organ in the body, before it is eventually eliminated through the body’s normal waste-disposal system. Most of it is processed by the kidneys and eliminated through the urine, but a small percentage of it is eliminated by the lungs when the drinker breathes out. That small amount of alcohol in the drinker’s breath proportionally represents the drinker’s blood alcohol content, or BAC. A breathalyzer machine measures breath alcohol and closely estimates the person’s BAC.

A breath alcohol test is not 100% accurate, and the results can be influenced by many outside factors, but a breathalyzer test does provide a quick and easy estimate of someone’s recent alcohol intake.
A breathalyzer provides instantaneous feedback. Someone breathes into its sensor, and it returns an estimated BAC in a matter of seconds. There’s no faster way to get an overview of someone’s current level of intoxication. Of course, it’s limited in that it can only provide a very recent snapshot of alcohol intake, but when it comes to recent use, no alcohol test is quicker or easier.
In cases where someone’s level of blood alcohol at a specific time must be measured, there’s no better way to do so than with a breath alcohol test. For example, after an accident or a serious traffic infraction, a breath alcohol test will provide instant feedback on whether or not the person was intoxicated at the time. Other tests can provide a current snapshot, like a blood test, but they aren’t as easily and quickly obtained as a breath alcohol test. If enough time passes before the test is performed, the results might not provide an accurate post-accident record. That’s why a breathalyzer is the industry standard for post-accident alcohol testing.
