Parameters

Carbon Monoxide

A measure of the percent (%) of hemoglobin that is bound to Carbon Monoxide in arterial blood and unable to bind oxygen. Non-smokers should have less than 2.3% while heavy smokers (> 2 packs a day) may be as high as 9%.

Why Measure:

CO levels as high as 4% can cause significant reduction in exercise performance. Tracking your CO values can help you see how changes in location or behavior can help minimize CO exposure and maximize your body’s oxygen-carrying capacity.

Methemoglobin

A measure of the percent (%) of hemoglobin that is in the oxidized state (Met) in arterial blood and unable to bind oxygen. Met values can normally range between 1 – 1.5 %.

Why Measure:

Met can accumulate as a result of diet high in nitrates or nitrites or strenuous exercise. Tracking your Met values can help you see how changes in diet or exercise routine can help minimize Met and maximize your body’s oxygen-carrying capacity.
