Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Blood Test

Carboxyhemoglobin

Test Code: 007187
Specimen Type: Blood
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Blood Test Online

Description:

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Blood Test (Labcorp)

This test is used to measure Carbon Monoxide (CO) levels in the blood.  Results will provide a value for the percentage of hemoglobin which has bonded with Carbon Monoxide known as Carboxyhemoglobin.  Carbon Monoxide is a colorless odorless gas which can be toxic when it is breathed in.  Inhaling Carbon Monoxide prevents your brain from receiving oxygen which can cause serious health complications and may be fatal.  Sources of Carbon Monoxide exposure can include vehicle exhaust, gas burning appliances such as stoves and water heaters which are not properly installed, cigarette smoke and fuel burning devices such as space heaters and grills.  Common symptoms of exposure to Carbon Monoxide can include headache, dizziness, blurred vision, nausea, weakness, confusion and sleepiness.   

This test is typically taken when someone is experiencing symptoms of CO exposure, especially if they live or work in an environment where there is a high risk of CO exposure.  A CO test may also be done to evaluate health effects for a person who smokes on a regular basis.  A Complete Blood Count (CBC) is often ordered with a CO blood test.  

It is important to note that testing for Carbon Monoxide should be done as soon after a suspected exposure as possible as CO is only detectable in the blood for a short period of time.  Anyone exposed to large amounts of Carbon Monoxide should be taken to a hospital for immediate treatment.   

Turnaround for this test is typically 3-4 business days.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.

Requirements:

People testing due to industrial exposure should have their sample collected in the late afternoon as close to their end of shift as possible due to the short amount of time it takes for CO to be eliminated from the body.
