The values of Dunham constants are calculated for the electronic ground state of the carbon monoxide molecule on the basis of new values of the effective rotational and centrifugal constants and the energies of the high vibrational-rotational states are predicted. The peculiarity of the approach consists in the use of vibrational-rotational levels computed according to the traditional polynomial equation of energy values as the initial data for the procedure of Dunham coefficients determination. The role of the maximum degree of the Dunham polynom in determining its coefficients is analyzed, and the energy levels up to ${v=40}$ and ${J=60}$ calculated. A comparison with the literature data is made.
