High levels of poisoning may require hyperbaric oxygen, which should be considered for patients who are unconscious or have an abnormal score on the Carbon Monoxide Neuropsychological Screening Battery, COHb of >40%, signs of cardiac ischemia or arrhythmia, history of ischemic heart disease with COHb level >20%, recurrent symptoms for up to 3 weeks, or symptoms that have not resolved with normobaric
oxygen after 4 to 6 hours.
Aspetar's recently-renovated altitude dormitory is a purpose built normobaric
hypoxic facility that utilises a filtration system to reduce the oxygen concentration in the air.
Recently, various living low training high (LLTH) methods such as intermittent hypoxic training (IHT), repeated sprint training in hypoxia (RSH), and resistance training in hypoxia (RTH) has become an increasingly popular altitude/hypoxic practice, where athletes live at or near sea-level but train at 2,000 to 4,500 m simulated hypobaric or normobaric
hypoxic conditions (Faiss et al.
sup],, In addition, the beneficial effects of safe subtoxic regimens of normobaric
hyperoxia were observed in various animal models of sepsis including gut-derived mouse sepsis,[sup] zymosan-induced mouse sterile sepsis,[sup] and early hyperdynamic porcine fecal peritonitis.

In this sense, prolonged normobaric
oxygen therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) would be suggested, which have shown improvements in the most common symptoms of chronic CO intoxication.
A prospective, randomized clinical trial to compare the effect of hyperbaric to normobaric
hyperoxia on cerebral metabolism, intracranial pressure, and oxygen toxicity in severe traumatic brain injury.
