Carbon Monoxide Poisoning:


Mechanisms of CO-induced Brain Damage:

Mean arterial blood pressure change in rats exposed to 2400 ppm carbon monoxide for 90 min. (A) Decline after 15, 30, 45 and 90 min. of exposure (compared to zero time value: +++, P<0.001). (B) Increase after 2 and 4 hrs. of room air recovery. From: Penney, D.G., et al. (1990) Elevated blood glucose is associated with poor outcome in the carbon-monoxide-poisoned rat. Toxicol. Letts., 54, 287-298.
