Abstract

Carbon monoxide poisoning (COP) is one of the most common types of potentially fatal poisoning throughout the world. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is an effective and quick response modality that clears symptoms and prevents sequelae. HBOT should be administered within 4-6 hours after poisoning. The aim of this study was to contribute COP treatment protocols by retrospectively examining the results of COP cases who were administered HBOT according to clinical and laboratory findings at the Emergency Department.

L'intoxication au monoxyde de carbone (ICO), potentiellement létale, est une des intoxications les plus courantes au monde. L'OHB permet de réverser rapidement les symptomes d'ICO et d'en prévenir les séquelles. Elle doit être réalisée dans les 4 à 6 heures suivant l'intoxication. Le but de cette étude est de contribuer à l'amélioration des protocoles d'OHB en cas d'ICO après examen rétrospectif des dossiers recueillis dans un service d'accueil des urgences.
