Health Effects Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Indicators - CDC Tracking Network

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Indicators

The Tracking Network provides data about health effects due to carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. These data can be used to assess the burden of severe CO poisoning, monitor trends over time, identify high-risk groups, and enhance prevention, education, and evaluation efforts.

Understanding that the data have limitations is important. These data come from hospital records, but recording a cause of injury in hospital admission or discharge records is not required in all states. This limits the ability to compare data across states. In addition, death investigation laws and reporting vary by place. This limits the ability to compare mortality data across locations.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Emergency Department Visits

This indicator shows the number of patients seen in an emergency department for carbon monoxide poisoning. These patients may have health effects ranging from very minor to very serious. However, even mild and moderate cases of CO poisoning show a CO risk in the person's home, work, or play environment. Advanced options include distinctions between fire, non-fire, unknown intent or mechanism poisonings. Data are available at the state level for select states.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Hospitalizations

This indicator estimates the number of people who were admitted to the hospital due to carbon monoxide (CO) exposure. Advanced options include distinctions between fire, non-fire, unknown intent or mechanism poisonings. Data are available at the state level for select states.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Mortality

This indicator tracks the number of people who died because they were exposed to CO unintentionally. Advanced options include distinctions between unintentional fire, non-fire, unknown intent or mechanism poisonings. Data are available at the state level for the entire United States.
