  1. Values collected in the emergency room before the patient was intubated and then treated with hyperbaric oxygen (HBOT1); GSC: Glasgow Coma Scale upon arrival at the emergency department; CoHb: Carboxyhemoglobin (values recorded before arrival at CSSS Alphonse-Desjardins Hôtel-Dieu de Lévis hospital); Tn1: troponin 1; Delay: between first primary care by paramedics and HBOT1; CAD: Coronary artery disease; SSS/PM: Sick sinus syndrome/pacemaker; T2DM: Type 2 diabetes mellitus; HTN: Hypertension. ASA: American Society of Anesthesiology patient classification status [12]. ASA-I: completely healthy fit patient; ASAII: Patient has mild systemic disease; ASA-III: severe systemic disease that is not incapacitating; ASA-IV: Patient has incapacitating disease that is a constant threat to life; ASA-V: A moribund patient who is not expected to live 24 hour with or without surgery.
