Intoxicación crónica por monóxido de carbono durante el embarazo: Presentación de un caso
Boletín del ECEMC: Rev Dismor Epidemiol 2004; V (nº 3): 54-56
Here we present a case of chronic carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning during pregnancy. The pregnant women suffered from headache, vomiting, dizziness…since the very beginning, which were considered symptoms of her pregnancy. The sudden death of a couple of birds 24 hours after they were located in her kitchen, put the physician on the scent, and when the appropriate analyses were made the CO chronic intoxication was confirmed. We would like to call the attention that the symptoms of the carbon monoxide poisoning during pregnancy could be easily confused with the typical gestation symptoms. Thus, a deep analysis of the maternal characteristics and circumstances should be always done to disregard all the potential risk factors, even for those symptoms that could be attributed to the pregnancy, because the risk for the embryo and fetus could be highly different.
