MANCHESTER, Tenn. (AP) — Four paramedics working at the Bonnaroo Music &Arts Festival have been hospitalized for possible carbon monoxide poisoning. Coffee County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lucky Knott tells news outlets it appears the exhaust of a generator used to power the recreational vehicle they were staying in was blocked. One of the paramedics woke up Monday and was able to get help. Three were airlifted to hospitals, while the fourth was taken to an area hospital. Their names and conditions haven't been released. Knott says the paramedics are not employed by Coffee County's emergency medical services. Th...

Unintentional non-fire-related (UNFR) carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is a leading cause of poisoning in the US and a preventable cause of death. We generated national estimates of accidental CO poisoning and characterized the populations most at risk.UNFR CO poisoning cases were assessed using hospitalization and emergency department (ED) data from the Healthcare Costs and Utilization Project National Inpatient Sample and Nationwide Emergency Department databases. We used hospitalization data from 2003 to 2013 and ED data from 2007 to 2013.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Treatment focuses on the rapid elimination of CO and management of hypoxia. Oxygen is the cornerstone of therapy, and usually applied via a reservoir face mask. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy eliminates CO faster, but requires extensive equipment and expertise. Non-invasive continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) ventilation using a tight mask provides a higher inspired fraction of oxygen (FiO2) compared to a reservoir face mask, and increases gas exchange.

We report the first case of a life-threatening PE that occurred immediately after acute CO poisoning and was treated with a thrombolytic agent. A 38-year-old woman presented at the emergency department with a stuporous mental status immediately after acute CO poisoning. She was started on hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), which maintained her hemodynamic stability.

Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is known to increase thrombotic tendency, and the risk of deep vein thrombosis in individuals who have experienced CO poisoning is higher than in the general population. However, there are a few reports describing cases of pulmonary thromboembolisms (PTE) secondary to CO poisoning.
