Abstract

Although carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning presents infrequently, it is a consequential and serious component of burn-related injuries, especially those injured via structure fire. A multitude of retrospective reviews and prospective trials have attempted to establish evidence demonstrating the ideal modality for oxygen administration in CO-poisoned patients; however, a consensus recommendation has not been reached. Given that half of fire-related patients succumb to CO poisoning, this is an imperative area of research.
