Abstract

At first blush, expired air carbon monoxide (CO) concentration is an appealing index of smoking behavior. Unfortunately there are a number of factors which can confound any CO-based evaluation of smoking treatment. We conducted several inferential and regression analyses on variables related to expired air CO concentration, and offer a number of recommendations on the use of this promising technique.
