Treatment of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Predictors for delayed encephalopathy following acute carbon monoxide poisoning

In patients with the characteristics identified in this study, administration of HBO therapy should be proactively considered after informing their family, at initial stage, of the risk of developing DNS, and at least 5 weeks’ follow-up to watch for the development of DNS is considered necessary.

Hyperbaric oxygen for carbon monoxide poisoning.

Existing randomised trials do not establish whether the administration of HBO to patients with carbon monoxide poisoning reduces the incidence of adverse neurologic outcomes, and pooled random effects meta-analysis does not suggest a significant benefit from HBOT.

Clinical policy: critical issues in the management of adult patients presenting to the emergency department with acute carbon monoxide poisoning.



Hyperbaric oxygen in carbon monoxide poisoning

There is little dispute that carbon monoxide poisoning is common: in the United States it produces an estimated 40 000 emergency department visits each year,1 and the accompanying editorial outlines

Carbon monoxide poisoning: interpretation of randomized clinical trials and unresolved treatment issues.

The most recent and best-designed randomized controlled clinical trial, performed in Salt Lake City, supports the efficacy of HBO2 in severe acute CO poisoning in accordance with scientific rationale and clinical experience.

Hyperbaric Oxygen for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Assessment of the effectiveness of HBO compared with normobaric oxygen for the prevention of neurological sequelae in patients with acute CO poisoning found empiric evidence of multiple biases that operated to inflate the benefit of HBO in two positive trials.

3 hyperbaric oxygen treatments reduced cognitive sequelae of acute carbon monoxide poisoning

Hyperbaric or normobaric oxygen for acute carbon monoxide poisoning: a randomised controlled clinical trial

Assessment of neurological sequelae in patients with all grades of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning after treatment with hyperbaric oxygen and normobaric oxygen to find out if there is a relationship between treatment and disease progression.

Hyperbaric oxygen for acute carbon monoxide poisoning.

Three hyperbaric-oxygen treatments within a 24-hour period appeared to reduce the risk of cognitive sequelae 6 weeks and 12 months after acute carbon monoxide poisoning.
