“Tell me about the first time you started smoking?”

A CO meter measures the amount of carbon monoxide in your body. My CO reading is: __________ One of the most deadly chemicals found in cigarettes smoke is carbon monoxide (CO). When you smoke, you replace oxygen with carbon monoxide in y your blood. YOU ARE POISIONING YOURSELF! The body needs oxygen to survive so the heart works harder to deliver oxygen. This puts smokers at greater risk for having heart attacks. CO is an odorless and colorless gas and even though you can’t see it, smell it, or taste it, it can kill you. This is the reason we have CO detectors in our homes. Environmental safety literature states that CO readings above 36ppm pose serious dangers to health and would evacuate buildings at this level.

0-8: Normal to very low smoking or second hand smoking 8-12 Worry—you are affecting your health 12-25 Cause for alarm—you are harming yourself 25-40 25 40 Danger or hazard to you health Over 40 Severe Danger—take immediate action Great News: If you quit smoking, your CO level will go back down to “0” and you will begin to feel better. You will be at the level of someone who never smoked. Your heart and lungs will benefit immediately and you will feel better.

Sit up straight in the chair with both feet flat on the floor. When I say go, you will take a deep breath and hold it for 15 seconds. The machine will help you count down for 15 seconds. When it gets to zero, close your lips tightly around the cardboard tube and blow out (exhale) into the tube for as long as you can. Do not blow too hard or it can affect the reading by disengaging the valve pin in the meter; just breathe out gently. View output number and explain the reading to your client.

Look to provide multiple interventions vs. single-episode treatment
