COVID-19 and CO Monitoring in Pregnancy
The following information from NHS England & Improvement has been cascaded through Maternity Safety Champions and MTP networks.
We are aware that there has been some concern around carbon monoxide (CO) testing and the risk of disease transmission in the context of the coronavirus outbreak.
In view of the unprecedented circumstances we suggest it is appropriate to pause CO testing of pregnant women during this period as a precautionary measure. It should be re-introduced as soon as the COVID-19 situation has resolved to a background risk.
