Abstract

Introduction: Arterial blood carboxyhemoglobin concentrations and exhaled carbon monoxide concentrations have been suggested to be inflammatory markers. Arterial carboxyhemoglobin concentrations can be measured from blood gas samples and concentrations of carboxyhemoglobin can be measured from carbon monoxide in exhaled air.
