How many drinks would give a 0.186 g/dL on a alcohol blood test?

If a person was tested two hours after they stopped drinking and their serum blood test came out to 0.186 g/dl, how much would you say they had to drink? What is a high level and what is considered low? Are there any reference sites at which to check alcohol serum levels?

    1. How many drinks they must have drunk depends on what was consumed, how quickly it was consumed, and individual metabolism. So that's not a very answerable question.

    2. Low level is 0.0, or no alcohol. 0.8-1.0 is the legal limit for DUI in most states.

    The content of the alcohol in the blood stream BAC varies based on sex, age, body size, body type, and a whole range of other things that make this calculation indicative only and not to be used as evidence in a court of law.

    Assuming that drinker was 25 year old male, 6 ft tall, weighting 200 lbs, and that he drunk 10 glasses of beers having content of 4.9% of alcohol, 2 hour ago, his blood alcohol content will be .109. In order to BCA to read .186g/dl they would need to drink about 18 drinks. They drunk much stronger staff.

    It depends on the size of the person and what they were drinking. For an annorexic midget drinking straight whiskey that's about two drops. But for Chris Farley, thats a gallon or so of Bud.
