CO Poisoning

Carbon-monoxide poisoning was a theory I had read about in books.Saw a young fellow wheeled into the outpatient with a GCS of 3/15.ABG showed a CO2 which was all but incompatible with life.Put the patient on a CPAP with a high flow Oxygen ...and by God's grace saw the ABG change albeit gradually.The next morning our chap was sitting up on the bed in a vociferous mood absolutely unaware of what he had been through.
We thanked the Lord for a precious life saved.
