Smoke Check

The Carbon Monoxide Monitor

The SmokeCheck is an innovative and inexpensive device to monitor smoking activity in patients. The SmokeCheck features an auto-zero function and a convenient "breath-hold" countdown feature. A single breath allows measurement of exhaled CO, which is displayed in measurement range and displays a red - yellow - green indicator light, denoting non-smoker, occasional smoker and active smoker.

Breath Carbon Monoxide (CO) Monitoring

Helping People To Stop Smoking

A simple breath test with a Smokerlyzer® will measure the levels of toxic carbon monoxide (CO) inhaled from tobacco smoke. CO in itself is harmful, as it reduces the amount of oxygen taken up by the body, but it can also act as an indicator as to the possible level of some 4,000 toxic substances in cigarette smoke, 60 of which cause cancer.

The Smokerlyzer® range of carbon monoxide (CO) monitors and testers is used during smoking cessation programmes to give the smoker visible proof of the damaging CO levels and to help motivate by charting the progress during the programme. All the instruments are surgically non-invasive, lightweight, battery powered, simple to operate and use hygienic inexpensive disposable mouthpieces. The Smokerlyzer® range is clinically proven and has become the benchmark used throughout the world by health professionals working in smoking cessation programmes and research.

The Micro CO

The Micro CO System

The Micro CO is the gold standard in CO breath testing, and is the most advanced system currently available today. Some of its many features include, fast response time, 1ppm resolution, immediate display of CO levels in PPM & %COHb, color light indicators, capable of interfacing with COBRA, a windows based software package for performing and storing real time breath tests on your PC.

The Micro CO is a powerful diagnostic tool for measuring alveolar Carbon Monoxide in PPM concentrations and percentage Carboxyhemoglobin. Operating from a single 9V PP3 battery for approximately 8000 tests the Micro CO combines accuracy and simplicity making it the preferred choice for all types of health professionals worldwide.

Micro Baby CO Monitor

The Micro Baby CO Monitor

It is never too late to stop smoking. Every cigarette you decide not to smoke will help you and your baby’s health. A baby in the womb receives everything from its mother. Nutrients and oxygen come via the placenta and umbilical cord. Smoking not only exposes the fetus to toxins in tobacco smoke, but also damages placental function.

When a person smokes, some of the oxygen in their blood is replaced by carbon monoxide. If a pregnant woman smokes, her blood and therefore her child’s blood will contain less oxygen than normal. This can cause the fetal heart rate to rise as the baby struggles to get enough oxygen.

As well as displaying the mother’s CO level in parts per million (ppm) and the %COHb, the Baby CO will immediately display the carbon monoxide levels in (%FCOHb) of the unborn fetus.

The BabyCO is the gold standard in CO breath testing and the most advanced system currently available today. Some of its many features include fast response time, 1 ppm resolution, immediate display of CO levels in ppm, %COHb and %FCOHb, three color light indicators and is capable of interfacing with COBRA, a windows based software package for performing, printing and storing real time breath tests on your PC.
