Alternate Names : CO Poisoning

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

A history of activity or illness as well as a complete physical exam help the doctor to diagnose this condition. A series of blood tests called an arterial blood gas test can measure the oxygen and CO levels in the blood. Other blood or X-ray tests can check the extent of the CO poisoning and rule out other conditions.
