      We present the case of a 70 year-old man with carbon monoxide poisoning following a house fire. A significant smoking history and likely underlying chronic lung pathology complicated treatment, as due to symptomatic retention of carbon dioxide we were unable to use high-flow oxygen to facilitate the elimination of carbon monoxide. We suggest that patients with risk factors for obstructive .   Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas resulting from incomplete combustion of fossil fuels or tobacco and is the leading cause of death by poisoning in the US (Centers for Disease Control: Carbon Monoxide Poisoning).

    A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is common in modern society, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality in the United States annually. Over the past two decades, sufficient information has been published about carbon monoxide poisoning in the medical literature to draw firm conclusions about many aspects of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and clinical management of the syndrome, along.

    Carbon monoxide poisoning is a major cause of illness and death in the United States. Most cases result from exposure to the internal combustion engine and to stoves burning fossil fuels. Most cases of accidental exposure are preventable if proper precautions are taken; however, when cases arise, their presenting signs and symptoms are nonspecific and often lead to a misdiagnosis resembling a. Carbon disulphide is commonly formulated in mixtures with nonflammable ingredients for fumigating grain. TOXICITY Judged on the basis of lethal dosages, CS 2 ranks rather low among the insect fumigants because relatively large dosages by weight are required.

Some Neurological Aspects of Poisoning by Bisulphide of Carbon. The position is discussed as to whether, apart from acute symptoms due to sudden over-exposure to carbon bisulphide, a chronic condition may arise after exposure for long periods, extending perhaps for years.

Acute symptoms are considered to pass off without leaving any : M. Andre. Czas Stomatol. Aug;19(8) [The influence of chronic poisoning with carbon bisulphide on dentition state].

Carbon disulphide easily forms explosive mixtures with air and ignites very easily; it is dangerous when exposed to heat, flame, sparks, or friction. Vapors can be ignited by contact with an ordinary light bulb.

Acute carbon disulphide poisoning is very dangerous. Absorption can occur through the skin, by ingestion or by inhalation. Carbon disulfide is poisonous. Poisoning can occur when producing viscose and carbon disulfide and when using CS 2 as a solvent and extraction medium.

Carbon disulfide easily penetrates the blood through the respiratory system and skin. Acute poisoning is produced by concentrations of carbon disulfide in the air of 1 milligram per liter and higher.

Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning affe people a year in the United States. The clinical presentation runs a spectrum, ranging from headache and dizziness to coma and death, with a mortality rate ranging from 1 to 3%. According to the Office for National Statistics and the Carbon Monoxide and Gas Safety Society, approximately 50 people die from CO poisoning each year in the UK 11 Between andthere were UK deaths caused by accidental CO poisoning Near misses from unintentional CO poisoning came toand of those, required.

Clinical presentation Acute carbon disulfide exposure can cause eye and skin irritation and CNS depression. [] Deeply researched and boldly presented, this book brings to light an industrial hazard whose egregious history ranks with those of asbestos, lead, and mercury.

[books. Chemical poisoning -- Carbon Disulfide: Introduction. Chemical poisoning -- Carbon Disulfide: Carbon Disulfide is a chemical used mainly in corrosion inhibitors, cold and nickel plating, photography applications and as a solvent in gums and resins.

Ingestion and other exposures to the chemical can cause various symptoms. Carbon monoxide poisoning 1. CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING 2. What IS Carbon Monoxide. It is a byproduct of combustion reactions, or the burning of certain fuels. CO can be emitted from gasoline-powered engines, natural gas heating systems, oil, coal, propane, wood and other materials which may also release carbon monoxide when burned.

Carbon monoxide is known to have adverse health effects resulting from either acute poisoning or chronic exposure (Balzan et al., ; Knobeloch & Jackson, ). As per WHO estimates, smoke. While an ever-present and familiar toxin, carbon monoxide (CO) remains the number one poison in our environment.

This silent killer is responsible for over 2, deaths a year in the United States alone. The public and healthcare communities need quality information about the many risks presented by carbon monoxide exposure.

Edited by a leading expert in the field, Carbon Monoxide Poisoning. ALTHOUGH acute carbon monoxide intoxication is a florid, well known and easily recognized entity, chronic poisoning with carbon monoxide is an insidious disease, more difficult to recognize, but no.

Typically chronic carbon monoxide poisoning is thought to involve long term exposure to low levels of carbon monoxide, but that is often not the case. Many times the significant acute exposures will occur at levels sufficient to cause illness, such as nausea, vomiting and headache. Carbon disulfide has been linked to both acute and chronic forms of poisoning, with a diverse range of symptoms.

Typical recommended TLV is 30 mg/m 3, 10 ppm. Possible symptoms include, but are not limited to, tingling or numbness, loss of appetite, blurred vision, cramps, muscle weakness, pain, neurophysiological impairment, priapism, erectile dysfunction, psychosis, keratitis, and death.

Silence isn’t always golden, especially when it comes to carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. CO is an odorless, colorless gas that can cause sudden illness and death. When power outages occur after severe weather, such as winter storms, using alternative sources of power can cause CO to build-up in a home and poison the people and animals inside.

Carbon monoxide poisoning typically occurs from breathing in carbon monoxide (CO) at excessive levels. Symptoms are often described as "flu-like" and commonly include headache, dizziness, weakness, vomiting, chest pain, and exposures can result in loss of consciousness, arrhythmias, seizures, or death.

The classically described "cherry red skin" rarely occurs.He concluded that chronic exposure to at least 45 ppm was necessary to cause intoxication.

[ACGIH] Heavy, chronic exposure to CS2 is associated with kidney disease as a secondary effect from the accelerated atherosclerosis.
