Treating Carbon Monoxide Poisoning with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Carbon monoxide (CO) is one of the leading causes of injury and death by poisoning worldwide. Because CO is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and non-irritating gas, its presence is difficult to detect.
To ensure good clinical outcome and reduce neurological sequelae, early diagnosis and treatment with hyperbaric oxygen is essential. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at Hyperbaric Centers of Texas provides 100% pure oxygen that works as an antidote to CO poisoning and hastens the removal of carbon monoxide from hemoglobin. This treatment quickly returns the body to normal oxygen levels.
