1 Intended Use The iCO Smokerlyzer® is a breath test carbon monoxide monitor intended for single-­‐patient use by people trying to stop smoking or in clinical smoking cessation programmes and research. CO monitors are used as a motivational tool by smoking cessation professionals. Monitoring an individual’s breath CO levels indicates their level of nicotine dependency and can also act as a fool-­‐
proof marker of recent smoking activity. Logging the CO levels and showing how smoking cessation can reduce these to normal healthy levels can be used to motivate the individual during their endeavours to quit smoking. Each CO level band can be associated with a particular risk group and health-­‐impairment factor. Using the power of SmartPhone or Tablet applications, the iCO Smokerlyzer® device will have an intelligent live display, guiding the user through the process of providing a breath sample for measurement. After the breath test, access is given to the results recording and reporting platform that can be accessed by both the individual and the clinician as part of the ongoing smoking cessation process. Introduction Carbon monoxide is a toxic, odourless, colourless, tasteless gas. It is formed by incomplete combustion of organic material at high temperatures, with an insufficient oxygen supply. When inhaled, CO displaces oxygen in the bloodstream to form carboxyhaemoglobin (COHb). This starves the body tissues of the oxygen, vital to repair, regeneration and general living. CO can remain in the bloodstream for up to 24 hours, depending on factors such as physical activity, gender, and inhalation intensity. The half-­‐life is about 5 hours.

Hands should be washed regularly in accordance with infection control practice. 2. Please do not attempt to modify the equipment in any way or use accessories not specified by the manufacturer. Any attempt to do so will invalidate the warranty and may compromise the safety of the device. Cleaning 1. The iCO Smokerlyzer® product is moulded with PC/ABS plastic, which is easy to keep clean. 2. Use non-­‐alcohol based anti-­‐bacterial cleaning wipes only. 3. NEVER use alcohol or cleaning agents containing alcohol or other organic solvents as long term exposure to these vapours will damage the CO sensor inside. 4. Under no circumstances should the instrument be immersed in liquid or splashed with liquid. Troubleshooting “An iCO device is not properly connected, please reconnect the device or choose the manual option” Make sure the Audio Cable is connected at both ends, between Smartphone and iCO. “An iCO device is not properly connected or the volume is not high enough….” Make sure the Audio Cable is connected at both ends, between Smartphone and iCO, Also check that the volume control on your Smartphone is on maximum (100%). Repeated test done too soon after previous test; holding the cable end of the device, wave iCO Smokerlyzer about for 15 – 20 seconds to remove residual contents from previous test and then repeat test. Repeated zero readings after breath test Even a non-­‐smoker should give a low reading of less than 6ppm. Check that you are completely emptying your lungs when exhaling in to the device. Possible Faulty Sensor. Unexpected high reading after breath test High levels of Carbon Monoxide in vicinity – (i.e. faulty Boiler), re-­‐take test outdoors if possible. Interference from a Radio or TV transmitter if you live close to one, re-­‐take test away from transmitter. Sensor has been exposed to Alcohol, do not use Alcohol based wipes. Leave iCO Smokerlyzer for 24Hrs in fresh air before use. Incorrect Pin Code, re-­‐enter Pin Code to value on the rear label of the iCO Smokerlyzer.
