    Abstract

    A significantly high blood level of ethanol is one of the most common factors among deaths investigated by medical examiners. There are few, if any, drugs that are as extensively used. Much information is available on forensic problems that involve the use and abuse of ethanol and on deaths contributed to, caused, or precipitated by ethanol [1–4].
