Journal Title:International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Carbon monoxide poisoning is one of the leading poisoning happening worldwide. Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless and tasteless gas which is easily mixed with other gases and by inhalation produce several complications. In blood CO is attached to hemoglobin resulting in the formation of carboxyhemoglobin which causes mitochondrial dysfunction by binding cytochrome oxidase. Symptoms of CO poisoning are related to the percentage concentration of carboxyhemoglobin. The management of CO poisoning in modern medicine is to increase the oxygen concentration at cellular level and in Ayurveda some like Vamana, Kawalgraha and Shirovirechana are carried out for the same.
