piCO Consumables

Years of research and vigorous testing ensures our Bedfont® products and consumables are not only safe for consumer use, but compliant with Medical Device Regulations. Use of counterfeit or non-Bedfont® approved accessories and consumables may result in loss of performance and/or damage to your device. This risk of incorrect results could adversely affect patient care. We also remind you that counterfeit and/or non-Bedfont® accessories and consumables do not possess the quality and reliability of the original manufacturer products, nor have they undergone the Toxicology tests to ensure they are fit to be used orally, and therefore their safety and infection control efficacy cannot be guaranteed.

Smoking in Pregnancy Software

Smoking in Pregnancy is a software specifically designed to help mums-to-be quit smoking. Compatible with the Micro+™ and piCO Smokerlyzer®. Once the monitor is connected to the computer, it uses a traffic-light colour system and shows the live CO reading of the expectant mother as well as the %FCOHb conversion. As seen on BBC’s Misbehaving Mums, the Smoking in Pregnancy software is a valuable tool to help expectant mothers quit smoking.
