Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning represents the most common cause of acute intoxication worldwide and may be associated with potentially life-threatening consequences. However, once the patient is safely discharged from the hospital, the risk of long-term sequelae still remains, which most commonly involves neurological and cognitive impairments, but also cardiological delayed injuries. In this narrative review we aimed at analyzing some of the most important pathophysiological mechanisms that are responsible for both the immediate and delayed injuries in case of CO poisoning, and to highlight the mainstay for the diagnosis and management of CO intoxication.
