ObjectiveTo study how the various 25 subtests and observations of the Norwegian clinical test for impairment related to the blood benzodiazepine concentrations of apprehended drivers suspected of driving under the influence of benzodiazepines. The impact of single-dose intake in non-daily users of benzodiazepines on the clinical picture of inebriation was also studied.MethodsIncluded in the study were 818 drivers suspected of driving under the influence of non-alcoholic drugs with blood samples… CONTINUE READING
