Unveiling at ESS 2016: A quicker, non-invasive way to detect CO poisoning

Bedfont® Scientific, based in Harrietsham, Kent, launches their new ToxCO® breath carbon monoxide monitor which instantly diagnoses CO poisoning

Bedfont® Scientific has specialised in the design and manufacture of exhaled breath and gas monitoring instruments since 1976. With an unprecedented network of distributors, Bedfont’s products can be found in over 70 countries worldwide.

At the Emergency Services Show (ESS) 2016, Bedfont can be found at stand P94, introducing the new and improved ToxCO® carbon monoxide (CO) breath monitor. Here you will be able to see, test and provide your feedback for the chance to win a ToxCO® of your own; there will be three chances to win a ToxCO® and goody bags for all participants.

Bedfont Scientific’s ToxCO® monitor instantly diagnoses CO poisoning by analysing a breath sample from the patient to determine the level of CO in their blood. The ToxCO® monitor is a non-invasive tool, which provides instant results, unlike more traditional methods of testing for CO poisoning, like blood testing. This, in turn, saves valuable time when diagnosing a patient and reduces unnecessary hospital admissions.

The ToxCO® also comes with a face mask option for unconscious patients or young children, and an ambient air mode designed for emergency services, fire services and first responders to safeguard them by warning when there are high levels of CO in the atmosphere.

Available for pre-order now, the ToxCO® is quick, easy to use and non-invasive, making it the ideal tool for all emergency services; allowing you to continue saving lives, one breath at a time.
