Simplicity and accuracy in smoking cessation during pregnancy
The CO Check + Baby has been specifically designed as a low cost screening device for smoking cessation during pregnancy. 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 + 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).
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.
The CO Check + Baby comes complete with all accessories and is supplied in a soft shell carry case for easy transport.
Additionally the CO Check + Baby is also capable of detecting environmental CO levels. When the Environmental Capture is enabled, background CO levels are taken into account when carrying out a breath test, allowing any possible environmental exposure to be clearly identified. Environmental levels are displayed in PPM.
