Carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas, which makes it extremely dangerous since it can often go undetected. Carbon monoxide is produced by the incomplete burning of fuels that contain carbon. When a person is exposed, carbon monoxide gas is inhaled through the lungs and is then absorbed by the hemoglobin in the red blood cells. Once absorbed, carbon monoxide interferes with oxygen transportation and delivery. Damage to the brain, heart and other vital organs can result, causing serious injury or death.
In extreme cases, victims of carbon monoxide poisoning may lose consciousness or die from the exposure. However, in some cases the symptoms are subtle and may take days, weeks, or even months to notice. Because the gas cannot be detected by sight or smell, carbon monoxide poisoning is often misdiagnosed as the flu, allergies, food poisoning, or psychiatric problems.
