Essential Tools for a Successful Smoking Cessation Program
Now more than ever, medical professionals are being asked to educate their patients about smoking cessation. As a dental hygienist, you see the effects smoking has on the patients’ teeth but that still may not be enough to get them to quit. Micro Direct offers highly effective tools that can assist you in your smoking cessation efforts by showing your patient the damage smoking is doing to their lungs. A breath CO monitor measures the level of carbon monoxide in a person’s lungs. A high CO reading could be powerful motivation for the patient to stop smoking. Another tool is a spirometer that calculates the patients “Estimated Lung Age” showing them how smoking is aging their lungs. More motivation to help them quit. Each test is a simple breath test that takes less than 5 minutes to perform. Stop by Micro Direct's booth for a demonstration of these highly effective, motivational tools.
You can tell them why it is bad to smoke…….with tools you can show them!
