Defective Appliances are One Source of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning can cause serious harm. Many household appliances can release carbon monoxide, particularly if they are broken, aging, or have a hidden defect. Gas stoves, space heaters, furnaces, and other sources of combustion can all cause a buildup of CO fumes that can cause poisoning.

CO poisoning occurs when carbon monoxide is breathed in. As CO hits the lungs and enters the bloodsteam, red blood cells pick up CO more quickly than they pick up oxygen. The carbon monoxide molecules can “crowd out” the oxygen molecules in the blood, causing asphyxiation, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Read the rest »
