Review article: carbon monoxide in gastrointestinal physiology and its potential in therapeutics
While carbon monoxide (CO) is a known toxin, it is now recognised that CO is also an important signalling molecule involved in physiology and pathophysiology.
Carbon Monoxide and the Eye: A Teaching Case Report
TLDR
This teaching case report highlights the need for eyecare professionals to recognize the possible ocular damage caused by carbon monoxide gas exposure.
Drug‐induced headache
TLDR
The current evidence for drug-related headache is reviewed, and, where possible, the underlying mechanisms are discussed.
Acute Headache
  • R. Forbes
  • Medicine
    The Ulster medical journal
  • 2014
TLDR
An approach to this problem based on the characteristics of the presenting headache type is suggested, which is more likely to identify the correct cause and manage the patient effectively.
Prospective study of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning in 38 Swiss soldiers.
TLDR
Dizziness was the most common symptom within the first two weeks and was reported in 92% of cases and 13% of controls, followed by headache and weakness and weakness, which typically had a delayed onset.
Not all morning headaches are due to brain tumours
TLDR
Attention to the possibility of analgesic medication overuse is particularly pertinent, but other treatable conditions such as depression and epilepsy must not be overlooked.
Analgesic use for carbon monoxide poisoning induced headache: A randomized, controlled, double-blind, clinical trial
TLDR
The results suggest that analgesics are not superior to oxygen therapy in the treatment of headaches caused by CO poisoning, however, ibuprofen + oxygen treatment may be applied in people who cannot tolerate headaches for a long time.
Headache in the elderly.
TLDR
Headache in an elderly patient can be a sign of serious, potentially life-threatening disorders that require emergent treatment and more benign etiologies of headaches are described.
Practice recommendations in the diagnosis, management, and prevention of carbon monoxide poisoning.
TLDR
Clinical practice guidance is provided to the pulmonary and critical care community regarding the diagnosis, management, and prevention of acute CO poisoning.

The illnesses of two patients with characteristic symptoms of subacute carbon monoxide poisoning were misdiagnosed initially. This resulted in the needless exposure of one patient and two relatives

TLDR
The purpose of this study was to determine the possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning as a cause of nonspecific flu-like symptoms in children who had no recognized exposure.
Mass carbon monoxide poisoning: clinical effects and results of treatment in 184 victims.
TLDR
Therapy consisting of oxygen delivered by mask achieved a half-life for COHb of 137 minutes in hospital-treated patients (compared to 320 minutes with no treatment), but did not fully reverse the symptoms of CO toxicity.
Occult carbon monoxide poisoning: a cause of winter headache.
  • P. Heckerling
  • Medicine

  • 1987
TLDR
Investigation of patients presenting to an emergency department during the winter-heating season with a complaint of headache for evidence of CO exposure found seven patients had COHb levels in excess of 10%, with a mean level of 14.0%.
A Longitudinal Study of 100 Consecutive Admissions for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning to the Royal Adelaide Hospital
TLDR
A longitudinal study of one hundred consecutive admissions to the Royal Adelaide Hospital for carbon monoxide poisoning was conducted from 1986 to 1989, and extensive neuropsychiatric testing at this time showed 32% of patients had obvious sequelae of their exposure.
Carbon monoxide poisoning.
TLDR
There appears to be no marker or constellation of signs or symptoms at presentation that predicts long-term outcome following CO poisoning, which can leave the patient with permanent neurocognitive or affective problems.
Warehouse workers' headache. Carbon monoxide poisoning from propane-fueled forklifts.
TLDR
These quantities of CO constitute a significant occupational exposure risk to workers using propane-fueled forklifts in unventilated indoor environments and are reported on.
Predictors of occult carbon monoxide poisoning in patients with headache and dizziness.
TLDR
Number of cigarettes smoked daily, use of stoves for heat, and concurrently symptomatic cohabitants as significant predictors of carboxyhemoglobin level were identified.
Pediatric carbon monoxide toxicity.
TLDR
All patients with levels over 25% COHb, neurologic findings, acidosis, or syncope were considered candidates for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), and no morbidity from HBOT was encountered.
Emergency department visits for carbon monoxide poisoning in the Pacific Northwest.
  • N. Hampson
  • Medicine

TLDR
The incidence of nonfatal poisoning in Washington, Idaho, and Montana appears to be significantly higher than may be appreciated from previous reports, and the number of individuals seeking emergency medical care for CO poisoning is much greater than is commonly quoted.
