The treatment for CO poisoning is high-dose oxygen, usually using a facemask attached to an oxygen reserve bag. CO levels in the blood may be periodically checked until they are low enough to safely send you home.
- In severe poisoning, a pressure chamber may be used, if available, to give even higher doses of oxygen.
- It is important to find the source of the CO. Your local fire department or public service company will help find the source of CO and make sure the building is safe.
