The epidemiology of Carbon Monoxide poisoning in Northeast of Iran

What is it about?

CO poisoning is still a public health concern, especially in developing countries. We aimed to focus on CO poisoning secular trends based on registry data for the recent 7 years in Northeast of Iran.

Why is it important?

It seems that current health prevention studies are not effectively working, these secular trends can enlighten health policymakers to implement proper population-based interventions like education or regulations for CO detectors.
