FERREYRA, Fernando Ramiro Martinel et al. Oxygen Dose-Implementation Celerity relationship in hyperbaric oxygenation for carbon monoxide poisoning. Acta toxicol. argent. [online]. 2020, vol.28, n.3, pp.1-10. ISSN 1851-3743.

A narrative review that raises a reflection about the role of hyperbaric oxygenation in the recovery of monoxide carbon (CO) poisoning is carried out. A description of the relationship of the pressure of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), oxygen dosage, and the delay in its implementation was done. Nine cases of intoxications treated with HBOT at 1.45 ATA due to lack of access to high-pressure HBOT were presented. While additional research is necessary, we suggest that this therapeutic modality at 1.45 ATA (Absolute Atmospheres) should be chosen instead of normobaric oxygen therapy for CO poisoning, and considered when high pressure facilities are not available at reasonable distances.
