The “Silent Killer”
Carbon monoxide (CO) is frequently referred to as the “Silent Killer” because it is a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas. Carbon monoxide reduces the amount of oxygen delivered to the body’s vital organs such as the heart or the brain. When exposed to large enough amounts of CO it can cause you to suffocate or lose consciousness within minutes.
Carbon monoxide poisoning is often due to:
- faulty equipment/appliances
- improper use or handling of equipment/appliances
- lack of or improper venting
- failure to comply with carbon monoxide detector regulations
