paramedics faulted over missed Dx of CO poisoning in crash

http://www.livingstondaily.com/story/news/local/community/howell/2016/09/12/family-questions-response-crash-caused-carbon-monoxide-poisoning/90283666/
As a retired paramedic, very, very few EMS systems carry portable COHb oximetry meters such as the RAD57 by Massimo, much less use them on MVA patients. Still, another source of CO poisoning to consider. Add this to all the CO poisonings at Lake Mead from outboard motor CO killing skiers.

    What I find saddest about that article is the apparent immediate assumption by the authorities and medics that the kids were drunk or drugged out. Most kids aren't, most of the time -- at least the ones I know.

    Well, the driver was operating outside the conditions of his graduated license- they'll nail him for that.

    And whoever owns the car is responsible for its proper maintenance.

    This won't be resolved for a while.
