In the 1 March 1999 issue of the Journal, we published a research article that challenged the conventional wisdom on treatment for carbon monoxide poisoning. Here, the authors of that study answer criticisms and commendations of their work. 

Topics from this paper

The use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for carbon monoxide poisoning in Europe.
TLDR
While transient or prolonged unconsciousness was unanimously recognized as an indication for HBO₂ therapy, positive neurological findings, ECG suggesting acute ischemia and pregnancy were considered important indications of HBO⁂ therapy in more than 95% of the centers.
Carbon monoxide poisoning.
TLDR
HBOT may be considered in patients who have persistent symptoms despite NBO, metabolic acidosis, abnormalities on neuropsychometric testing, or significantly elevated levels, and the ideal regimen of oxygen therapy has yet to be determined, and significant controversy exists regarding HBOT protocols.
Carbon monoxide poisoning.
TLDR
HBOT may be considered in patients who have persistent symptoms despite NBO, metabolic acidosis, abnormalities on neuropsychometric testing, or significantly elevated levels, and HBOT accelerates dissociation of CO from hemoglobin and may also prevent DNS.
Predicting sporting outcomes: a statistical approach
TLDR
This document summarizes current capabilities, research and operational priorities, and plans for further studies that were established at the 2015 USGS workshop on quantitative hazard assessments of earthquake-triggered landsliding and liquefaction in the Czech Republic.

TLDR
The effects of oxygen at 1, 2, and 3, atmospheres absolute (ATA) were assessed on brain lipid peroxidation caused by carbon monoxide poisoning in a rat model and oxygen at 3 ATA had an intermediate effect.
