Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy For
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Summary of condition

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning occurs when there is too much carbon monoxide in your bloodstream. Your red blood cells absorb Carbon Monoxide faster than oxygen, causing them to carry carbon monoxide through your body rather than oxygen. This can cause your body’s organs to develop a lack of its essential oxygen and as a result, not function properly.

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Confusion
  • Loss of muscle coordination
  • Chest pain

Conventional Treatments

If you develop symptoms, you should first get into a clear air environment away from where the carbon monoxide build-up is and call 911. Initial treatment at hospital settings is breathing through oxygen mask or ventilator. This will help initially help the offset of carbon monoxide in your body.


How Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Can Help

HBOT can be critical in delivering oxygen for severe cases of carbon monoxide poisoning. It can be used to help protect the brain and heart which are vulnerable to injury when someone is diagnosed with carbon monoxide poisoning.
