Extract

Introduction: The measured values of CO are directly proportional to the number of cigarettes smoked per day, though there are significant individual variations. Carbon monoxide in exhaled air is most easily monitored biomarker; in the absence of CO in the environment,this is the most well accepted method of measuring the consumption of tobacco.

It is a easily method to determine, asking the smoker to expire in a portable Analyzer, available commercially. CO is expressed in ppm (parts per million), a unit of measurement that can be converted as an equivalent of carboxihemoglobin.
