Carbon monoxide (CO) levels were tested using a piCO Smokerlyzer
(Bedfont, UK) at each visit.
The centre offers a smoking cessation package that includes blood investigations, ECG, Smokerlyzer
test to measure the levels of toxic carbon monoxide (CO) inhaled from tobacco smoke.
The centre offers a smoking cessation package that includes blood investigations, ECG, pulmonary function test and Smokerlyzer
test to measure the levels of toxic carbon monoxide inhaled from tobacco smoke.
"We can also carry out Smokerlyzer
tests to show how much carbon monoxide is in someone's breath - and body mass index (BMI) tests to show someone if they are in a healthy weight range."
Quitting will be verified through participants' registration with a local smoking cessation provider, or the Quitline, and by quit status using a "smokerlyzer
They use a tool called the Smokerlyzer
to measure carbon monoxide in participants' breath.
Exhaled carbon monoxide levels were measured by Micro CO Smokerlyzer
Participants were loaned a hand-held breath CO meter (Bedfont piCO+ Smokerlyzer
, COvita, Haddonfield, NJ) during their participation in the study.
Smoking status was assessed biochemically using a Bedfont Smokerlyzer
which measures exhaled CO.
Participants provided a breath CO using a Micro Smokerlyzer
(Bedfont Scientific Ltd., Rochester, UK).
Body mass index checks and Smokerlyzer
tests, which measure the amount of carbon monoxide in a person's lungs and bloodstream, will also be available.
