Abstract

In the study of physiological effect influenced by alcohol, the measurement of alcohol concentration is one important part of the researches. The efficient, accurate and convenient measurement tools are relatively under consideration. In this study, the regular blood tests, respiratory type alcohol examines, and Heart Rate Variability (HRV) were used to compare with the bioimpedance data in human body. The feasibility study was applied to record the ECG data from the human body with the analysis of the LabView 7.1 (National Instruments) and DAQPad 6020E (National Instruments). The bioimpedance data measured from the from left hand to right hand was recorded and analyzed by our bioimpedance measuring system and the MATLAB software version 6.5. All the electrophysiological parameters were analyzed with statistic software. In the result, the Heart Rate Variability (HRV) was significantly different in some subjects after alcohol consumption. However, there were no significant different in the bioimpedance measurement.
