Warnings, Precautions, Notes


  • Ensure that your sensor is kept away from small children under 3 years of age and pets when not in use. The sensor includes a removable straw that could pose a choking hazard. 
  • Low levels of CO in your exhaled breath (for example, 0-6 ppm) do not indicate that it is safe for you to initiate smoking or increase your smoking, or that your current level of smoking is safe. Smoking is harmful to your health and any amount of smoking is unsafe. 

Precautions When Giving Breath Samples

  • Sit down while giving breath samples. Holding your breath and then blowing into the device may cause you to become dizzy, which may lead to falls. 
  • When taking a deep breath in to do a breath sample, do not take this breath through the breath sensor. 
  • Do not use the breath sensor while operating any type or vehicle or machinery as you may be distracted from the operation. 
  • Do not strain yourself while giving a breath sample. This may cause dizziness, which may lead to falls.

When Cleaning the Pivot Breath Sensor

When Storing and Handling the Pivot Breath Sensor

  • Do not subject the breath sensor to extreme hot or cold temperatures, or extreme humidity (see Product Specifications).
