Abstract
A NEW, SIMPLE DEVICE THAT CAN MEASURE CARBON MONOXIDE (CO) ON THE BREATH WILL BE DEVELOPED IN THIS PROJECT. THE TECHNOLOGY UTILIZES A MICROSENSOR AND MICROELECTRONIC CIRCUIT THAT ALLOWS THE ENTIRE DEVICE TO BE HAND HELD AND OPERATE ON A WRISTWATCH BATTERY. THE NEW MICROINSTRUMENT READOUT IS SMALL ENOUGH TO FIT EASILY IN THE HAND OR POCKET AND REQUIRES VIRTUALLY NO MAINTENANCE AND CALIBRATION. THIS TECHNOLOGY IS ALSO LOW COST, SO THE ENTIRE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM IS AVAILABLE FOR COMMON USE. THE MAJOR PROBLEMS OF CURRENT DEVICES, SUCH AS SAMPLING AND EASE OF USE, ARE ADDRESSED BY THIS RESEARCH.
