Just interested in the science here, how does an Alcohol Breathalyzer measures blood alcohol? If someone drinks a single shot of whiskey then immediately does the Alcohol Breathalyzer, does that alcohol register via ‘fumes’?
Does the device somehow differentiate and only register the actual alcohol that’s absorbed into the blood?
