Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and poisonous gas, which is why it is sometimes referred to as the “invisible killer.” Everyone is at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning and unfortunately, severe damage and even death can occur before you even realize what is happening. Thousands of people are treated in hospital emergency rooms for carbon monoxide poisoning every year. In most instances, exposure to carbon monoxide is the result of a defective product or another person’s negligence.
Carbon monoxide poisoning is often known as the “invisible killer” because it is an invisible, odorless gas. If you or a family member is experiencing any of these symptoms, you might have CO poisoning.
Symptoms can include any of the following:
- cognitive problems
- frequent headaches
- change of mood or personality
Carbon monoxide comes from a wide array of sources, including furnaces, kitchen appliances, grills, fireplaces, camping stoves, hot water heaters, indoor heating systems, and the exhaust from all types of vehicles. Common employees such as welders, firefighters, factory workers, and mechanics come into contact with the chemical at their places of work.
