Sex Differences in Alcohol Misuse and Estimated Blood Alcohol Concentrations Among Emergency Department Patients: Implications for Brief Interventions
Academic Emergency Medicine, 08/02/2012
Trillo AD et al. – Although men drink more than women, women have similar estimated blood alcohol concentrations (eBACs) with comparable levels of alcohol misuse. Women may benefit from recognizing that they are reaching similar levels of intoxication compared to men. Addressing these differences and possible health implications in future emergency department (ED) brief interventions may induce changes in problematic alcohol use among women.
