Why is Carbon Monoxide so Deadly?

Carbon monoxide may be an emergency, so it’s not something to mess around with.

1. You Can’t Taste It

Carbon monoxide is deadly because you aren’t able to observe it, smell it with your nose or detect it with your taste buds. It’s nonirritating in low concentrations and can’t be purified.

2. It Can Be Fatal in Just a Few Minutes

Carbon monoxide is a result of used fuel. It can creep into your home during cold weather if the heat exchanger on your gas furnace cracks. While it depends on how considerable the leak is and the ventilation in a residence, carbon monoxide may become fatal in just a few minutes.

Once inhaled, the gas has a half-life of approximately five hours. If you are inhaling clean air, it requires five hours to remove it from your bloodstream. It requires an extra five hours to reduce that amount by half.

3. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Can Resemble Other Illnesses

Carbon monoxide may also cause symptoms that can be mistaken as the flu, viral infections and chronic fatigue syndrome, among other things.
