Resumen

SANTIAGO, I. Gas poisoning. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2003, vol.26, suppl.1, pp.173-180. ISSN 1137-6627.

Poisoning by gases in our area is an important problem due to its high incidence. In the specific case of carbon monoxide poisoning, this is the main cause of death by poisoning in our environment, on many occasions coexisting with cyanide poisoning. Both poisonings can be severe, their diagnosis being based on the mere suspicions of the doctor. Besides, their importance lies in the fact that both poisonings have a very specific treatment. Normo or hyperbaric oxygenotherapy is the treatment for carbon monoxide poisoning. In the case of cyanide poisoning, hydroxocobalamin is nowadays the treatment of choice, since it has proved itself to be an efficient antidote.

Palabras clave : Intoxication; Carbon monoxide; Cyanide; Oxygenotherapy; Hydroxocobalamin.
