La mesure de monoxyde de carbone dans l’air expiré chez la femme enceinte

Abstract : Despite a fight against smoking that continues to strengthen the conditions under which consumers are allowed to smoke, smoking in France remains a major public health problem and especially for pregnant women. On the other hand, screening seems to be the first obstacle to optimal care since studies show that the number of smokers and the number of cigarettes consumed declared are underestimated. Objective: The HAS recommends to use the test of expired of carbon monoxide (CO) concentration to detect and monitor smoking in pregnant women. This study therefore aims to evaluate the patient’s perception of this measure. Methods: A qualitative study was conducted among 13 pregnant and smoking women. For each of them, before performing the CO-test, a first interview has been done to evaluate their own tobacco consumption and their initial motivation to stop smoking. A second interview was then conducted after having the CO measure to evaluate the test impact on motivation, one the evaluation of their consumption and finally on understanding the issues of weaning. Results: The test of expired of carbon monoxide allowed the majority of women to become aware of the issues of smoking cessation and to increase their motivation to quit smoking. Moreover, it did not induce women to negative emotions. On the other hand, it did not change the patients' point of view about the intensity of their own consumption.
