Resource Cards

Refer to the following directions on how to use the BAC Cards:

  1. Consider the standard drink sizes listed on the left hand side of the card. Remember: just because the alcohol fit into one cup, doesn't mean it's only one standard drink.  

  2.  Vertically, downward on the for the number of standard drinks one may have if they choose to drink. Horizontally, across the top of card is the amount of time in hours.

  3. If  you line up the horizontal and the vertical sections, you'll find the approximate BAC of someone within that weight range.  

BAC charts are based on the sex assigned at birth and weight. If taking hormones one  should consult their primary care provider. There are additional factors that impact BAC levels, such as body mass index, speed of consumption, type of alcohol, type of mixers, and food consumption. It is important to remember that these charts are estimates only.
