Carbon monoxide reports
- Low carbon monoxide levels are still dangerous says Yale News
- A recent study confirms what many carbon monoxide poisoning survivors have known for years - that exposure to low levels of carbon monoxide is dangerous! It's shocking we know. Sometimes science takes a long time to prove the obvious.
- Automobiles and carbon monoxide

- Non fire carbon monoxide deaths
- Reports done by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.
- Non fire related carbon monoxide statistics
- A somewhat dated (1997) report on non-fire related carbon monoxide statistics
- Carbon monoxide limits in the work place

- A large report on carbon monoxide sponsored by the United Nations Environment Programme, the International Labour Organization and the World Health Organization.
- BBC television program investigates carbon monoxide
- Inside Out investigates a domestic menace which is poisoning hundreds, even thousands of people in their own homes every year. It's called carbon monoxide.
- A report on carbon monoxide alarms and hazards in housing
- An introduction to circumstances that can trigger carbon monoxide alarms and the hazards posed by carbon monoxide in housing. Intended to assist community-based organizations conducting indoor environmental sampling campaigns in understanding the issues around carbon monoxide poisoning.
- Carbon monoxide poisoning: Still an under recognized problem
- A report on why carbon monoxide poisoning remains under recognized, under diagnosed, and under accounted.
- A report on carbon monoxide appliances: Gas appliance check project
- A 2006 survey of gas appliances in nearly 600 homes finding 22% of appliances were rated as "dangerous". This report opens the door for serious safety concerns for the general public.
- A report on CO poisoning: Delayed neuropathology after carbon monoxide poisoning is immune-mediated
- The symptoms and after effects from CO poisoning cannot be explained by oxygen deprivation alone. This report looks into potential "domino effects" caused by poisoning.
- A report on CO alarms: Joint industry project on carbon monoxide issues
- This report investigates the long-term reliability of domestic CO alarms.
- A report on carbon monoxide gas as a potential hazard in naval shore facilities
- This report alerts designers, inspectors, housing administrators,
maintenance personnel, and occupants of the hazards, causes, and precautions necessary to avoid injury and loss of life due to carbon monoxide poisoning.
- A report on the clinical toxicology of carbon monoxide
- Carbon monoxide is dangerous but it is also an essential neurotransmitter. There is considerable evidence that oxygen deprivation damage occurs late in CO poisoning however the treatment of acutely poisoned people and environmental exposure limits are largely based on an oxygen deprivation (hypoxic) theory of toxicity.
- A report on carbon monoxide hyperbaric treatment
- This report looks at the treatment of neurological after effects and symptoms with hyperbaric oxygen treatment.
- A report alerting medical professionals about carbon monoxide: The forgotten killer
- Carbon monoxide is responsible for a large number of deaths and many more sub-lethal poisonings, which often lead to lasting neurological damage in victims. An even greater number of people are likely to suffer from the effects of poisoning but be unaware that the cause is carbon monoxide.
- A report of a woman that develped carbon monoxide mania
- A report of a 55-year-old woman with no past history of neurological or psychiatric illness, that developed mania after carbon monoxide intoxication.
- Carbon monoxide in the workplace
- Carbon monoxide is a leading cause of poisoning in the workplace and the home. This guide provides basic information about carbon monoxide, its hazards, detection and control.
- Report on carbon monoxide poisoning levels
- A detailed report by the US Department of Housing on carbon monoxide levels with a focus on healthy homes.
- Tiny levels of carbon monoxide damage fetal brain
- A new study has discovered that chronic exposure during pregnancy to minuscule levels of carbon monoxide damages the cells of the fetal brain, potentially resulting in impairment.
- Acute carbon monoxide poisoning - Poisoning - Clinical Evidence
- What are the effects of oxygen treatments for acute carbon monoxide poisoning? What are the interventions?
- New first-aid method could prevent brain damage in patients exposed to carbon monoxide
- A new first-aid method of treating carbon monoxide poisoning could prevent brain damage in patients by delivering more oxygen to the brain than the standard treatment. This information was released in 2002.
- CO Poisoning
- A 34 page report on CO Poisoning including references to Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment
- CO sequelae (symptoms and after effects) and hyperbaric oxygen
- Carbon monoxide poisoning is common and causes cognitive sequelae (symptoms and after effects). Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) reduces cognitive sequelae incidence, but which patients may beneﬁt from HBO2 is unclear.
