We have created a range of breath CO devices and testers which measure the small amounts of CO in exhaled breath. The more you smoke, the higher your CO reading will be. The reading is given in ppm, which is the number of CO molecules in a million parts of air. The ppm reading can also tell you how much CO is in the blood (the %COHb) reading). %COHb is the percentage of red blood cells carrying CO instead of oxygen. The amount of CO in an unborn baby’s blood is referred to as %FCOHb (percentage of foetal carboxyhaemoglobin). Some of the Smokerlyzer range can analyse %FCOHb as an incentive to stop smoking and comply with new NICE guidelines for smoking in pregnancy. This is a proven method to help motivate smokers quit smoking.
