BACKGROUND To determine carboxyhemoglobin levels and to investigate carbon monoxide poisoning risk in children. PATIENTS AND METHODS We determine carboxyhemoglobin blood levels by cooximetry in 65 children, between 15 days and 15 years attended in a pediatric emergency section. We analyze carbon monoxide risk factors (type of heating and smokers in the(More)
