||Effects of short-term exposure to carbon monoxide in subjects with coronary artery disease
||Nov.-Dec. 1989, Vol.44, No.6, p.361-369. Illus. 13 ref.
||A study was made among 24 male subjects (mean age 58.8 yrs, mean weight 90.26kg) with stable angina pectoris to determine the effects of short-term exposure to carbon monoxide (CO). Following CO exposure, blood carboxyhaemoglobin (COHb) levels were increased from a baseline level of approximately 1.5% to 3% of saturation. The goal of the study was to determine if low-level CO exposure compromised the ability of these individuals to perform work. The time of onset of angina was significantly reduced among CO-exposed subjects, so that work capacity was indeed affected by exposure.
