Even so, the medical and legal aspects of alcohol are complex topics due to many different components present in alcohol-related cases. This book covers many important topics including alcohol and the law, biochemistry of alcohol, physiology and alcohol, blood, urine, other fluid and tissue specimens for alcohol analyses, analysis for alcohol in postmortem specimens, computer tools for body alcohol evaluation, breath as a specimen for analysis for ethanol and other low molecular weigh alcohols. The wealth of information presented in this book makes it an invaluable resource when investigating and litigating cases involving alcohol.
