What is Carbon Monoxide?Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, toxic gas that is formed by the incomplete combustion. Although carbon monoxide could occur naturally, it does not pose a natural danger to humans. Carbon monoxide is dangerous, however, when it is released by common household appliances in confined spaces. Excess levels of carbon monoxide could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, which could be very dangerous to exposed parties.
The Dangers of Carbon Monoxide PoisoningCarbon monoxide poisoning could be very harmful to all those exposed to dangerous levels of the infamous gas. Carbon monoxide poisoning could cause headaches, weakness, dizziness, upset stomachs, chest pain, vomiting, and confusion. Carbon monoxide exposure could make unsuspecting parties pass out. People who pass out or are asleep when the exposure to carbon monoxide begins run the risk of dying. Although carbon monoxide poisoning can be fatal, those who survive often struggle with long-term or permanent effects. These effects include (but are not limited to) impaired memory, emotional instability, and changes in intellectual capabilities, for example. Without a doubt, being carbon monoxide poisoning could be very dangerous.
