Two products exclusively available from Intermedical was recently featured on the latest episode of the BBC documentary series Horizon.

The programme, that was broadcast on BBC 2 on Sunday 22nd May, featured the MIR Spirolab Spirometer developed by Intermedical and Bedfont’s piCO Smokerlyzer in the latest episode “E-Cigarettes: Miracle or Menace?” This episode, hosted by Michael Mosely, takes 26 volunteers who failed in their attempts to quit smoking and are split into 3 groups and put through a 4-week study to investigate the pros and cons of e-cigarettes.

The volunteers performed diagnostic tests including CO breath monitoring and Spirometry before and after the study. Both the Bedfont piCO smokerlyzer and the MIR Intermedical Spirolab were both used in these diagnostic tests and the results were surprising.
