By David G. Penney

Whereas an ever-present and widespread toxin, carbon monoxide (CO) continues to be the number 1 poison in our environment.  This silent killer is answerable for over 2,000 deaths a yr within the usa by myself. the general public and healthcare groups desire caliber information regarding the various dangers offered by means of carbon monoxide exposure.  Edited through a number one professional within the box, Carbon Monoxide Poisoning delineates the profitable skill to avoid, establish, and deal with the results of CO poisoning. This quantity explores new info on CO toxicity, together with rehabilitation, the dissemination of knowledge to the general public, litigation related to CO poisoning, fiscal loss review, and firefighting. a sequence of chapters aspect the chance of CO poisoning from kitchen levels, leisure autos, and gear boats. specialist individuals survey diagnostic systems and units, incorporating advances in mind SPECT imaging and non-invasive pulse-oximetry. The booklet contains chapters that particularly addressthe execs and cons of hyperbaric oxygen remedy and punctiliously evaluation the physiological results of acute and long-term publicity to CO, in addition to the neurocognitive and neurobehavioral sequelae. even if you're a physician who treats CO poisoning, a legal professional all in favour of litigation for dying or estate as a result of CO poisoning, or an engineer constructing a well-insulated constitution with enough air flow; you'll face the demanding situations raised via CO toxicology. supplying the single finished reference at the topic, this multi-faceted advisor takes an leading edge examine how we will be able to determine, deal with, and stop damaging publicity to carbon monoxide.
