Lion AlcoBlow is simplicity itself to use! Switch on, wait a few moments for the STATUS light to show green, then start sampling breath!
In operation, the Lion AlcoBlow has two modes of breath sampling:
ACTIVE mode: tell the subject to blow into the sampling cone, from a few centimetres away. The beeper indicates that a sample of breath has been taken for analysis: the alcohol indication is shown just a few seconds later. The unit then automatically resets quickly for the next test.
PASSIVE mode: this is used to obtain a breath sample when it has been observed that the subject has difficulty in blowing or is unco-operative, hold the cone in front of the subject’s mouth and press the PASSIVE switch while he is speaking or breathing out. Again, the result is shown just a few seconds later.
