CO Poisoning ED Visits Data

CO poisoning emergency department visits include the number of patients seen in an emergency department for CO 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, or unknown-based poisonings. Due to the small number of cases, data are only available at the state level.

Measure Description:

  • The ED Visit Count is the number of emergency department visits with any diagnosis or injury code for unintentional CO poisoning.
  • The Crude Rate (Per 100K) is the rate of emergency department visits with any diagnosis or injury code for unintentional CO poisoning per 100,000 Population.
  • The Age Adjusted Rate (Per 100K) is the age adjusted rate of emergency department visits with any diagnosis or injury code for unintentional CO poisoning per 100,000 Population. Age adjustment to the 2000 Standard US Census is done to allow direct comparison of rates in counties and state with different population age distributions.
