The piCObaby™ Smokerlyzer® is a breath carbon monoxide monitor, specifically designed for use with pregnant smokers. Intended for multi-patient use by healthcare professionals in smoking cessation programmes and research, the familiar traffic light system provides visual motivation to the mum-to-be to quit smoking whilst also providing the feotal reading both in ppm and %FCOHb.
The piCObaby™ offers an unprecedented view of the internal effects of smoking by using the traffic light results system for both the mum-to-be and the baby.
The piCObaby™ CO monitor is a valuable tool for pregnant smokers to visualise the effects that smoking is having on them and their child.

SteriBreath™ mouthpieces for use with Bedfont® breath analysis monitors, combining ease of use with optimum infection control.
The D-piece™ incorporates a one-way valve to prevent air being drawn back from the monitor. The mouthpiece itself is specifically designed with integrated filtration to remove: >99% of airborne bacteria, >96% of viruses and any moisture from the patient’s breath1. The D-piece™ should be changed every four weeks or more often if visibly soiled. An automatic reminder will appear on the screen every 28 days.
The OneBreath™ mouthpiece is a single-use bacterial filter mouthpiece and can be attached directly to the monitor to take a breath sample. The OneBreath™ incorporates a one-way valve and an infection control filter, which are proven to remove and trap >99.9% of airborne bacteria1.
Smoking in Pregnancy is a software specifically designed to help mums-to-be quit smoking. Compatible with the Micro+™ and piCObaby™ 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.
