    Alcohol test after blood donation.
    Hello,
    I've donated blood (480 cc). Seven hours later I've been checked for an alcohol concentration in blown air.
    Question: Could the fact that I've donated blood, affect the alcohol test results? Is there a correlation between the concentration of alcohol in blood and in blown air?
    If so, can I say that for same amount of alcohol, less blood in body => higher concentration in blood => higher concentration in blown air?

    Thanks a lot!
    Alex.

    No, it doesn't work that way. That is not a defense.

    An actual blood test would have to be taken as it is more accurate than a breathalyzer.

    You would have to have this blood test result as a defense.
