CO

The two-character ISO 3166 country code for COLOMBIA.

CO

1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the Republic of Colombia. This is the code used in international transactions to and from Colombian bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Colombia. This is used as an international standard for shipping to Colombia. Each Colombian department and the capital district have their own codes with the prefix "CO." For example, the code for the Department of Bolivar is ISO 3166-2:CO-BOL.

The 12-year-old s carboxyhemoglobin level was 16 percent, while the 11-year-old's was 12 percent.
In postmortem toxicology, spectrophotometry is an established and commonly used technique for measuring carboxyhemoglobin.
It is well known that increased concentrations of carboxyhemoglobin (COHb) will lead to overestimation of hemoglobin concentrations as measured photometrically at a single wavelength (1).
For example, in a patient who is a smoker with an SpO2 of 98%, carboxyhemoglobin level of 12% and methemoglobin of 1%, if SpfO2 were available, it would be displayed at 85%.
1 and 2 show that perflubron causes the OSM3 to give spuriously low oxyhemoglobin readings and spuriously high carboxyhemoglobin readings when the true carboxyhemoglobin concentration is in the 0-3% range.
The presence of sulfhemoglobin in a blood sample is suspected whenever a methemoglobin result is displayed [greater than or equal to]10%, combined with a negative carboxyhemoglobin value.
Pulse CO-Oximetry allows clinicians to noninvasively monitor multiple blood constituents that previously required invasive or complicated procedures, including total hemoglobin (SpHb), oxygen content (SpOC (TM)), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO), methemoglobin (SpMet), Pleth Variability Index (PVI), and acoustic respiration rate (RRa).
