Nursing Care Plan – Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning is rapidly transported across the alveolar membrane and preferentially binds to hemoglobin in place of oxygen to form carboxyhemoglobin (COHb). Carbon Monoxide causes the oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve to shift to the left, thereby impairing oxygen unloading at the tissue level. This shift results in a substantial reduction in oxygen delivery, given that 98% of the oxygen supplied to the tissues comes bound to hemoglobin.
