New Breath Testing Device Introduced in Kansas

The CMI Intoxilyzer 9000 was introduced in the state of Kansas as a new device for breath testing. Attorney Robert Gigstad recently attended a course on breath testing and the Intoxilyzer 9000, where attendees were educated on proper training for using the device, administering a breath test, and ethical conduct when representing individuals facing DUI charges.

The Intoxilyzer 9000 is an infrared breath tester that implements "forms technology" in order to create specific documentation association with the test's subject. When in use, the Intoxilyzer 9000 is capable if cutting the time it takes for an arresting officer to complete paperwork following a DUI arrest. Infrared breath testers are commonly used for producing evidential breath alcohol results – these devices produce printouts that can are considered admissible evidence in court.

There are a number of factors that can affect an individual's blood alcohol content, including:

  • Gender: Women tend to have higher BAC levels than men drinking the same amount.
  • Rate of Consumption: The faster an individual consumes alcohol, the faster his or her BAC will rise.
  • Food & Mixers: Food slows the rate at which alcohol is absorbed in the blood stream.
  • Mood: Stress and anxiety can often cause a diversion and slow down the rate at which your body processes alcohol.
