What is Carbon Monoxide Poisoning?
Carbon monoxide is produced by various fuel-burning products and engines, resulting from the incomplete combustion of organic matter.
When there is insufficient oxygen supply to enable complete oxidation to carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide is released. If the gas builds up within an enclosed space, it may pose life-threatening risks for humans.
Because carbon monoxide has no smell, color or odor, it is very difficult to detect and often results in exposure for extended periods of time.
This is especially likely if an individual is sleeping or fails to leave the area after experiencing symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, such as:
- Other Flu-Like Symptoms
