ToxCO® Breath Analyser from Bedfont Scientific

The ToxCO® is a carbon monoxide (CO) breath analyser for diagnosing CO poisoning. An ideal tool for emergency services and first responders, the ToxCO® is an instant and non-invasive way to diagnose CO poisoning.

Why ToxCO?

The ToxCO® is an easy to use, non-invasive breath and ambient air CO monitor, with three sampling modes, enabling breath samples to be taken from patients of any age or consciousness, and the monitoring of ambient levels to alert staff of potentially fatal levels of CO in the air.

Why is it important?

The mouthpiece and facemask sampling modes allow the user to test a patient independent of their consciousness, while the ambient sampling mode will safeguard the user, alerting them if they are entering area with high levels of CO. The ToxCO® reduces unnecessary hospital admissions through its instant diagnosis but also helps to save the lives of your patients and your staff.
