Abstract. For most known DOs detailed NLTE model atmosphere analyses have now become available. We therefore review our current knowledge about hot helium rich (DO) white dwarfs. These stars represent the non-DA white dwarf cooling sequence from the hot end (T_eff ~ 120 000 K) down to the DB gap (T_eff ~ 45 000 K). Determination of effective temperature, surface gravity and atmospheric composition allows a discussion of the evolutionary status of these stars.
