A gas detector is disclosed which includes a CO sensor and a processor. The CO sensor senses an environmental CO concentration and provides a variable electrical output in response. The processor receives digitized samples of the sensor's electrical output and computes, with each measurement sample, a COHb level of a hypothetical person exposed to the CO concentration sensed. The computation involves determining an equilibrium COHb level for each measurement sample, which is compared with a previously computed COHb level associated with previously measur...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A gas detector comprising:a carbon monoxide (CO) sensor for measuring an environmental CO concentration and providing a variable electrical output responsive thereto; anda processor responsive to samples of said electrical output for computing a carboxyhemoglobin (COHb) level of an individual as if exposed to the measured CO concentration and providing an output signal based on the COHb level computed, whereina computed COHb level is obtained with each measurement sample, said computed COHb level associated with a current meas...
