Resumen

CORTEZ, Analia et al. Carbon monoxide poisoning caused by water pipe smoking (Narghile). A case report. Acta toxicol. argent. [online]. 2021, vol.29, n.3, pp.127-132. ISSN 1851-3743.

Amongst the alternative ways of tobacco use, water pipes (also called hookah, shisha or narghile) have been used as implements. This type of use is an emergent one in our environment, being used by high school and college students. Due to the use of charcoal as a way to burn the tobacco, and the long using times it presents, the users are at risk of being poisoned by carbon monoxide, especially if they smoke in enclosed spaces. In this paper, we present the case of a 19-year-old female patient, who was brought to the hospital with a severe case of carbon monoxide poisoning, requiring treatment with oxygen in a hyperbaric chamber. We make a review of the literature.
