Aim : The objective of this study is to evaluate the correlation between tobacco consumption and levels of exhaled carbon monoxide. Material and Methods : To conduct the literature review, multiple databases and sources were utilized. The search was conducted using MeSH Terms related to tobacco and exhaled carbon monoxide. Initially, 421 titles were identified from these sources, and after screening, 118 records were examined, resulting in 25 research-related articles. The review adhered to the PRISMA guidelines for systematic reviews to ensure a standardized and rigorous approach to the evaluation of the selected studies. Results: Six randomized controlled trials were incorporated in the analysis, aiming to compare the association between tobacco consumption and exhaled carbon monoxide levels. The findings from all six trials consistently demonstrated a significant correlation between these two variables. Conclusion: To sum up, the analysis of research publications focusing on tobacco consumption and exhaled carbon monoxide (CO) levels yields valuable insights regarding the correlation between smoking behavior, CO levels, and the associated health implications. This body of literature enhances our understanding of the relationship between smoke & implications on well being, shedding light on the potential risks and consequences of tobacco use. Clinical Significance: Gaining a deeper understanding of these relationships can play a significant role in developing impactful strategies for smoking cessation. Furthermore, it can help raise awareness about the detrimental effects of tobacco smoke and emphasize the importance of reducing tobacco consumption. By leveraging this knowledge, we can work towards implementing effective interventions and public health campaigns aimed at promoting smoking cessation and improving overall population health.
