SafeBreath® has been designed to achieve maximum hygiene results without the need for additional adaptors and the minimal use of plastics. SafeBreath® mouthpieces are the ideal solution for all aspects of exhaled carbon monoxide measurements in smoking cessation, pre-operative assessment departments, and CO screening. The filters have been independently tested and have a proven Bacterial and Viral efficacy >99% ensuring optimal patient infection prevention. Post COVID-19 breath testing can now be safe using SafeBreath®
The CO Check Pro Baby will also provide the level of foetal carboxyhaemoglobin. There is a clear correlation between the exhaled carbon monoxide on the pregnant mothers breath and that of the % carboxyhaemoglobin in the foetal blood supply (%FCOHb).
The CO Check Baby + has been specifically designed as a low cost screening device for smoking cessation during pregnancy. Users are guided to hold their breath with a count down timer and then encouraged to exhale with an on screen blow icon to assist testing compliance.
Ease of use is key in a busy smoking cessation clinic – from a single breath the results are instantly displayed in parts per million (PPM) and % carboxyhaemoglobin (%COHb), clear visual guidance is also provided with coloured red, yellow and green indicators.
A single breath will instantly display results on the large screen in CO part per million (PPM) or % Carboxyhaemoglobin (%COHb) – the amount of carbon monoxide attached to your red blood cells represented as a percentage. The CO Check + comes complete with all accessories.
Single patient use mouthpieces – Protecting your patients; Your device and the environment. SafeBreath ® mouthpieces remove the need for using additional plastic adaptors or plastic mouthpieces reducing plastic waste and the environmental impact it has.
Small, portable and lightweight, the RP Check allows paediatric and adult patients to be tested with ease in various settings. The RP Check can be used as a battery operated, standalone device, saving the last patients results on the unit for report creation.
One of the most frequent hydrogen breath tests is for lactose intolerance. Lactose is a sugar found in milk and other dairy products. Unless it is changed into glucose it cannot be absorbed into the body. The number of bacteria is greatest in the colon but much lower in the small intestine.
When dealing with CO, time is critical. In the blood stream Carbon Monoxide has an affinity with haemoglobin some 200 times greater than Oxygen. When this happens, the blood is no longer able to carry oxygen, and this lack of oxygen causes the body’s cells and tissue to die.
The Dental CO is a fully featured breath Carbon Monoxide monitor for the rapid assessment of smoking status. After a single breath the Dental CO will instantly give results in PPM and %COHb. The Dental CO can serve as a valuable motivational tool for smokers to quit.
