Carbon Monoxide in Your HomeAbout Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, tasteless, and odorless gas that can be deadly at unsafe levels or extended exposure. It is often referred to as The Silent Killer because it is virtually undetectable by the human senses. When a person is exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide, oxygen is displaced from the blood cutting off the oxygen supply to the body’s vital organs. Oxygen deprivation can lead to permanent brain damage and even death.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Symptoms

Symptoms of CO poisoning depend upon the concentration of carbon monoxide in the environment and the length of time the person is exposed. The most common symptoms include: headaches, weakness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, confusion, blurred vision, loss of consciousness, brain damage, and untimely death.

At lower levels of exposure CO poisoning symptoms can be mistaken for the flu. If you believe that you are experiencing symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, you should remove yourself from that environment and contact medical professionals immediately.
