Abstract:
A new method has been validated and used for measuring breath carbon monoxide (CO) as an indicator of success of two health education programmes for the prevention of smoking in patients admitted to the coronary care unit (CCU) in the Western Infirmary in Glasgow. Healthy adults (Ruchill Hospital employees) and Glasgow High School children were used to standardise methods for measuring carbon monoxide and to establish reference ranges for smokers and non-smokers.
