  • The water pipe is a means of tobacco consumption widespread in Turkey and Arab countries. We present two patients brought to our emergency department due to a syncopal attack secondary to carbon monoxide toxicity following water pipe use. This rare form of poisoning should be borne in mind by emergency physicians as a differential diagnosis in water pipe smokers. Water pipes should be used where there is adequate ventilation.
