What is Carbon Monoxide (CO)?
Carbon monoxide is a dangerous, poisonous gas that kills hundreds of people each year and injures thousands. The most common causes of carbon monoxide poisoning are poorly fitted or maintained domestic fossil-fuel-burning heating appliances, such as boilers, gas fires etc. It is often referred to as the silent killer because it has no odour or taste and cannot be seen which makes it HIGHLY dangerous. Like oxygen, CO enters the body through the lungs during the normal breathing process. It competes with oxygen by replacing it in the red blood cells, thereby reducing the flow of oxygen to the heart, brain and other vital organs. In high concentrations, CO can kill in minutes.
