A Pilot Study on use of the Smart Start wrist alcohol monitor to estimate physiological alcohol concentration trajectories.

Study Overview

The purpose of the study is to characterize the output of the BARE transdermal alcohol sensor against a known alcohol exposure trajectory in several healthy subjects.  To achieve this objective, subjects will be given a controlled alcohol infusion that raises their breath alcohol level to 60 mg/dL and holds it there for 3 hours.  Alcohol concentration levels will be measured in serial samples of breath and venous blood, and compared to transdermal alcohol concentration measurements obtained from the BARE device, and to CAIS physiologically-based pharmacokinetic modelling of breath, blood and tissue compartments.
