CO Poisoning Reports from Hurricanes Katrina/Rita

To UHMS Members in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas;

The CDC continues to collect cases of Katrina/Rita-related CO poisoning that were treated with HBO2. They feel that the "hyperbaric reporting network" is their most reliable source of information on the topic!

If you have treated any cases of CO poisoning related to Katrina or Rita, please email me at neil.hampson@vmmc.org. No patient identifiable information will be collected.

For your interest, I am attaching their most recent summary. Thanks for your help.
