Does anyone know what substances may interfere with CO oximetry?  It
tests for methemoglobin to check for carbon monoxide poisoning,  but I
am wondering if other substances cause a false positive if they also
bind with the hemoglobin molecule.  How would cyanide poisoning affect
results of CO oximetry?  thanks in advance,  a student.
