The ToxCO® is a carbon monoxide (CO) breath analyser to screen for CO poisoning. An ideal tool for emergency services and first responders, the ToxCO® is a quick, easy, reliable and completely non-invasive way to screen for CO poisoning.
The ToxCO® is an easy to use, non-invasive breath and ambient air CO monitor, with three sampling modes, mouthpiece, face mask, and ambient monitoring to alert users of potentially fatal levels of CO in the air.
Clinical research has demonstrated that 'the concentration of carbon monoxide in end-expired air after breath holding correlates closely with carboxyhaemoglobin concentration'1.
With the ToxCO®, the mouthpiece and face mask sampling modes allow the user to test a patient independent of their consciousness, whilst the ambient sampling mode will safeguard the user, alerting them if they are entering an area with high levels of CO.
The ToxCO® helps to reduce unnecessary hospital admissions through instant mass screening, saving valuable time.
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.
This sampling system is single-patient use and allows the patient to breathe normally through a face mask in order to produce a breath sample. The face mask is available in three different sizes: infant, medium and adult.
