【检测酒精新科技,帮助酗酒者戒除酒瘾】

【检测酒精新科技,帮助酗酒者戒除酒瘾】科学家研制出一种微型装置,能够注入皮肤下方,持续监测血液中酒精含量,并与智能手机相连实时监控,血液中的酒精含量能够在3秒内显示,与目前使用的呼吸检测器(7s)形成鲜明对比。发明这一装置的工程师希望用它帮助酗酒者戒除酒瘾,治疗师能够实时监控酒精含量并制定合理的治疗方案。尽管血液监测结果是最精确的,但是这种装置简单方便,不需要专业的医疗人员进行分析。

 

 

 

A new way to measure alcohol in the blood? Scientists create tiny device that sits beneath your skin and can tell if you’ve had too much booze within 3 seconds

Scientists have now created a tiny new sensor that can continuously monitor levels of alcohol in the blood.

 

The device, which measures roughly one cubic millimeter, is injected beneath the skin and can be linked up to a smartphone.

 

Alcohol levels in the blood can be displayed within three seconds, according to scientists at the University of California, San Diego.

 

The device is in stark contrast to a breathalyzer, which requires people to breathe into it for at least seven seconds.

 

Engineers who created the gadget hope it will be used to monitor alcoholics, and help therapists keep an eye on their progress.

 

They claim current tools used for routine monitoring, which involve breathalyzers, are not as accurate as the new chip.

 

A blood test is the most accurate method, but it needs to be performed by a trained technician - unlike the gadget.

 

And tattoo-based alcohol sensors, considered a promising new alternative, can be easily removed and are only single-use.

 

Drew Hall, an electrical engineering professor at the university's Jacobs School of Engineering, led the project into the device.

 

He said: 'A tiny injectable sensor could make it easier for patients to follow a prescribed course of monitoring for extended periods of time.'
