dc.description.abstractCarbon monoxide [‎CO]‎ poisoning from coal and gas heaters is a public health concern in Turkey. This study estimated the prevalence, mortality rate and clinical predictors of severity of CO poisoning cases treated at the emergency unit of the Uludag University Medical School, Bursa from 1996 to 2006. Of 305 patients treated over a 10-year period, only 1 case was recorded as suicide. The CO source was a coal heater in 85.9% of cases. Mean Glasgow coma score [‎GCS]‎ on admission was 12.8 [‎SD 0.2]‎ and mean carboxyhaemoglobin level was 21.6% [‎SD 0.92%]‎. There were statistically significant associations between higher GCS score, older age and higher HbCO level. Better education of the public is vital for the prevention of these injuriesEN
