How is carbon monoxide poisoning treated?

If you suspect you have been exposed to carbon monoxide, or you have carbon monoxide poisoning symptoms, call 911 or get to an emergency room as soon as possible. You’ll be given an oxygen mask to breathe through to provide pure oxygen. This will offset the carbon monoxide buildup.
