Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is a formula that is used to determine how much alcohol is in the bloodstream.
BAC is personalized and is based on four factors
- how many standard drinks have been consumed
- how many hours (or length of time) in which you’ve been drinking
Also, it is important to note other influences on BAC, such as:
- whether or not you are drinking on a full stomach vs. an empty stomach
- how hydrated your body is
- other substances like medication or caffeine present in the body, etc.
