||The effects of CO and ethyl alcohol on behavioral test performance were assessed at 24 hour exposure as compared to a 5-1/2 hour exposure to identical concentrations of CO. A dose level of 1.6ml of 100 proof alcohol/kg body weight and a COHb blood level of approximately 14 percent were chosen. The purpose of the study was to test the hypothesis that a 24-hour exposure to low levels of CO would have deleterious effects on behavior and that alcohol would potentiate such effects. The data obtained from tests of coordination, arithmetic, inspection, manual dexterity, time estimation, and vigilance did not provide evidence to substantiate either of these hypotheses. The only positive result was alcohol adversely affects eye-hand coordination.
