Carbon monoxide (Co) has no taste, no colour, and no odor, but when it reach higher concentration on the blood stream, it leads to sudden death. It can be obtained from cigarretes smoke. When it is inhaled, the affinity of hemoglobin for Co is greater than oxygen (O2). This will increase levels of carboxyhemoglobin (CoHb).The high CoHb concentration will cause many health problems such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. Cigarettes comsumtion in Indonesia is increasing rapidly every year, it includes electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes). E-cigarettes are commonly used in attempts to replace tobacco cigarettes because it’s less chemical compounds. But the recent researches show that e-cigarettes still contain some dangerous chemical compounds, on of them is Co. This study aims to determine the effect of the smoking duration with e-cigarretes on CoHb concentrations in e-cigarettes smokers on Serengan Subdistrict in Surakarta. This was an experimental research with purposive sampling method. The concentrations of carboxyhaemoglobin was analyzed using UV-Vis Spectrophotometer. The test results were obtained concentrations of CoHb : 5.87%, 6.01%, 5.97%, 5.91%, 6.04%, 5.99%, 5.76%, 5.82%. from 8 respondents. The data was analyzed by linier regression and one-way anova test using SPSS.  The conclusion is 81,90 % carboxyhaemoglobin concentrations is affected from the smoking duration and 18,10 % affected with other factors.
