Carbon monoxide testing is a critical
component of firemen’s regimen especially after finishing a
firefight. Breathe E-Z System’s CO Sleuth is one of the best
instruments to use for measuring levels of EMT carbon monoxide poison. Firefighters are
one of the occupational groups at the greatest risk of exposure to
carbon monoxide and CO poison. Overtime, even small levels of
carbon monoxide can build up and cause brain and heart damage.
Studies have shown that just a few deep breaths of smoke can contain
dangerously high levels of carbon monoxide that can produce severe
hypoxic stress on the cardio vascular system. This CO-induced
hypoxia is intensified with high-levels of peak physical activity
when a fireman is fighting even a small fire. It’s easy to see that
a fireman is a typical candidate for EMT carbon monoxide poison. Therefore, it
is imperative that firehouses create an awareness of this hazard and
implement ongoing strategies to prevent EMT carbon monoxide
The CO Sleuth is a great device to prevent or mitigate early signs
of EMT carbon monoxide poison. This test is non-evasive and can be
self-administered with precise results at the site of the fire. By
simply breathing into the mouthpiece, the CO Sleuth displays an accurate measurement of carboxyhemoglobin,
in less than a few minutes.
With oxygen on hand, the firefighter can quickly reverse the
dangerous affects of the onset of CO poisoning.
Breathe E-Z System’s is your best source for detecting EMT CO
poison with the CO Sleuth.
