Carbon monoxide is the leading cause of mortality from unintentional poisoning in Slovenia. It has been shown that carbon monoxide levels can rise in wood pellet storerooms because of chemical degradation of pellets, even at room temperature. We present a case of lethal carbon monoxide poisoning with first responder carbon monoxide exposure.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a gas, which is produced by incomplete combustion of hydrocarbon-containing substances, and causes significant tissue and organ damage in the common event of CO poisoning. This...
Carbon monoxide poisoning is a very common intoxication worldwide. Its clinical manifestations vary from symptoms like mild headache and dizziness to more serious issues including death. Less well kno...
Carbon monoxide poisoning affects approximately 5000 children per year and can be challenging to diagnose and treat (Pediatr Emerg Med Pract. 2016;13:1-24). It is in the differential diagnosis of a pa...
Carbon monoxide (CO) is the cause of a significant percentage of fatal poisonings in many countries. It is known that fatalities resulting from CO poisoning are underreported and/or misclassified. Car...
This study aimed to describe the epidemiology and clinical burden of unintended carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning among children in the Negev region of southern Israel.
Carbon monoxide poisoning is common. Many adults with CO poisoning have long-term, even permanent brain injury following poisoning. However, very little is known about the long-term outcom...
Suspicions of carbon monoxide poisoning that lead to the treatment of victims are numerous. Measurement of transcutaneous carbon monoxide saturation (SpCO) is a useful diagnostic and triag...
Carbon monoxide poisoning still places a burden on the healthcare system worldwide. While oxygen therapy is the cornerstone treatment, the role and practical modalities of hyperbaric oxyge...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a relationship exists between EtCO2 and carboxyhemoglobin levels in carbon monoxide exposure. Our hypothesis is that a liner relationship ...
The purpose of this study is to collect non-invasive observational data in suspected or known carbon monoxide poisoning.
Toxic asphyxiation due to the displacement of oxygen from oxyhemoglobin by carbon monoxide.
Poisoning that results from exposure to gases such as CARBON MONOXIDE; NOBLE GASES; OXYGEN; or NATURAL GAS.
Carbon monoxide (CO). A poisonous colorless, odorless, tasteless gas. It combines with hemoglobin to form carboxyhemoglobin, which has no oxygen carrying capacity. The resultant oxygen deprivation causes headache, dizziness, decreased pulse and respiratory rates, unconsciousness, and death. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
Poisoning that results from ingestion, injection, inhalation, or skin absorption of CARBON TETRACHLORIDE.
An amorphous form of carbon prepared from the incomplete combustion of animal or vegetable matter, e.g., wood. The activated form of charcoal is used in the treatment of poisoning. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)
