Abstract Acute CO poisoning is the most frequent reported cause (although probably often underreported due to misdiagnosis) of accidental death by poisoning in France, whereas the incidence or the prevalence of chronic poisoning are not known, because of its insignificant clinical manifestations. This data sheet contains information on the physics and chemistry of both CO and CO2 as well as on the clinical aspects of poisoning.
