Portable Protection from Deadly CO
Each year tens of thousands of people across the U.S., and even more globally, are poisioned by the toxic gas Carbon Monoxide (CO). These people include small airplane pilots, recreational boaters, truck drivers, students, firefighters, miners, scuba divers, homeowners and renters, and even families on vacation. This invisible gas can kill in just minutes, and non-fatal poisonings can leave victims violently ill. Countless more suffer mild symptoms everyday, and possibly long-term health effects, from repeated exposure to low-levels of CO in their jobs or homes.
Introducing Pocket CO Model 300, the world’s smallest renewable Carbon Monoxide detector. Designed by leading engineers in the air quality and gas detection industry, and built using cutting edge nanotechnology, Pocket CO is advanced enough for use by industry professionals but still incredibly simple to operate. Tiny enough to fit on a keychain, and weighing under 1 ounce, Pocket CO is an easy and affordable way to detect and monitor CO at home, away, or on the job. Learn more.
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is an odorless, tasteless gas produced by incomplete burning of fuels including gasoline, oil, and wood. When breathed, it deprives the blood stream of oxygen. Breathing a large enough concentration of CO can lead to illness, and even death. Learn more about CO from the links below, or read the full article on this “silent killer”.

Last Wednesday I took off from Langley BC to Powell River and back to Langley in a Piper Cherokee for a dual cross country ride; this is a bit over two hours flight, and most of the way is along the Pacific coast. After I started the engine we heard some sort of beep in the cabin, so we looked at the instruments, checked cell phones, our headsets, everything seemed OK, plus none of us heard that kind of beep in a Cherokee before. It took us about a half hour of flight to figure out that the Pocket CO was beeping (was the first time using it, completely forgot I had it until my flight instructor asked me to check that “thing” hanging around my neck). When I read it, it showed 63ppm; so we closed the heaters, and opened all vents, until the reading dropped to 3ppm, that is a more “normal” figure. By now we were well above Vancouver, but because of the low reading we decided to keep going and not go back to Langley. Apparently the CO peaked to 90ppm (if I read the 12hrs log correctly), that was probably during our climb when we used full power. My flight instructor wanted to ground the airplane, but the end result was the school installed a new chemical indicator! The mechanics got a bit touchy, because the airplane just got back from a 100hrs check, they said there was no way we had any CO in the cabin, but I’ve seen the numbers, and I don’t really care what they say: I fly the airplane.
I knew this little device could save my skin one day, I didn’t expect it so soon! I had a few more flights since then, with different airplanes, all show a very low CO number.

Pocket CO is the best instrument I have used.

I was initially skeptical, but I was soon sold on the product… I inspected a home with an older furnace. Within minutes of firing up the furnace, the Pocket CO detector indicated over 200ppm of CO in the room! This was in the bedroom for 3 little girls and a little boy. I truly believe that the Pocket CO detector helped me bring this deadly condition to the attention of the homeowner and the seller. I believe lives were saved. And as a bonus, it’s small and easy to carry, and easy to use. I’m very happy with the Pocket CO Detector.

We are a volunteer first aid squad and like to keep the Pocket CO clipped to our blood pressure case. This way, every time that we enter a home or business to treat a patient, we run a quick test to assure that we are safe.
