PRG Software for Micro+ Smokerlyzer

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) Guidelines (June 2010 - How to stop smoking in pregnancy and following childbirth) recommend all pregnant mothers-to-be are CO checked.
Reasons for measuring CO levels during pregnancy:

In March 2011 Bedfont were approached by BBC3 TV, to supply CO monitors for use in a new TV series being broadcast entitled “Misbehaving mums to be”. The programme followed a group of mums to be under the care of specialised midwives who showed them the impact of their bad habits on their unborn child including smoking. Using their extensive experience the midwives helped these women transform their bad habits and reverse the dangers being posed to their babies lives.

As part of the package offered to the programme, Bedfont designed an exclusive software package for use with the Micro+ Smokerlyzer which, when used in conjunction with a CO breath test, displays on a computer screen the %FCOHb, using an image of a foetus with a sequence of lights from green to red, depending on the levels of CO present, as well as an audible alarm.

This software was found to be very motivational for the pregnant smokers and resulted in many of them sucessfully giving up smoking, thereby protecting the health of their child for the future.
