CO Poisoning Hospitalizations Data

CO poisoning hospitalizations include the number of people who were admitted to the hospital due to CO exposure. Studies have found that 10% to 40% of severe carbon monoxide poisoning survivors may have long-term neurological problems. 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 Count of Hospitalizations is the number of inpatient hospital admissions with any diagnosis or injury code for unintentional CO poisoning.
  • The Crude Rate (Per 100K) is the rate of inpatient hospital admissions 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 inpatient hospital admissions 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.
