Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a relationship exists between EtCO2 and carboxyhemoglobin levels in carbon monoxide exposure. Our hypothesis is that a liner relationship exists between EtCO2 and carboxyhemoglobin in carbon monoxide poisoning.

Group/Cohort
Carbon Monoxide Exposure



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. EtCO2 [ Time Frame: Immediately upon study enrollment, an average time of 30 minutes post arrival to the hospital. ]
    The EtCO2 level is measured by capnography and compared to the carboxyhemoglobin level.
