Monóxido de carbono

ALiEM - By Dan Repplinger, MD | December 23rd, 2013
"Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas and is one of the most common causes of unintentional poisoning deaths in the United States. It is also one of the most common p­oisoning presentations to Emergency Departments. Because CO is produced by the incomplete combustion of carbon-containing fuels, the incidence of accidental exposure peaks during the winter months due to increased use of in-door heating sources and reduced ventilation.Several management dilemmas commonly arise when dealing with patients with potential CO poisoning.
The primary objectives in treating CO poisoning are:
  • Removal of the patient from the source
  • General supportive care
  • Administration of oxygen"
