Twenty volunteers, 10 with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and 10 with no disease, ingested a vodka cocktail. Serial determinations of blood alcohol level (BAL) by gas-liquid chromatography and simultaneous Breathalyzer estimations of BAL were used to calculate blood:breath alcohol partition coefficients (PCs). Data from the present study were combined with data obtained in a previous study using identical methodology to examine the relationship between age and BAL estimation. It… Expand
