I have witnessed, when using a defibrillator on a patient
suffering/dying from CO poisoning, the charge seems to dissipate with
no affect.. and i mean, you assume the padels of the defibrillator are
not functioning, as they literally just click! I have seen this on 2
patients who turned out to have CO poisioning, and of course never
seen this on patients without CO poisoning. I would like to know what
physiological changes have occured that alter the way defibrillation
works on a body?!
