Carbon Monoxide Toxicity
edited by David G. Penney

  • Compares different approaches to managing CO poisoning around the world

  • Addresses the broadening awareness of chronic, non-lethal CO exposure and the health harms it can cause

  • Presents both high tech scanning approaches and neuropsychological tools in the diagnosis of damage from CO poisoning

  • Examines the setting of carbon monoxide health regulations in the environment and their success over the past several decades in the United States

  • Includes new data on CO in suicide and motor vehicle accidents around the world and recent attempts to curtail them

Carbon Monoxide Toxicity examines the latest basic science and clinical research from around the world. It addresses the gamut of health-related CO issues, from the history of CO studies to the hidden threat of chronic low-level exposure. The broad themes center on clinical management of various forms of CO poisoning and education of the public on the constant dangers of CO.

Carbon Monoxide Toxicity meets the need for current research on the clinical management of CO poisoning.
