Abstract

Each year, particularly during the heating season, thousands of people are poisoned by carbon monoxide, with potentially devastating outcomes. Initial diagnosis can be difficult because symptoms closely resemble those of influenza and are often misinterpreted. Dr Tomaszewski discusses diagnosis and treatment, including the benefits and risks of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
