Common Causes of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is poisonous to humans. The gas is produced during the combustion of fossil fuel, and common causes of carbon monoxide poisoning include leaks from appliances, fireplaces, and vehicles. An undetected carbon monoxide leak inside a home, office, or apartment can have deadly results. In addition, a generator placed outside can leak carbon monoxide through an open door, window, or vent, poisoning victims at home as well as in boats and campers.
Heating or cooking products and engine-driven tools, such as lawn mowers and power washers, are also common sources of carbon monoxide injuries. In some cases, a leak can occur because of a faulty product or a malfunctioning engine. When a victim is exposed to a small leak for an extended period of time, he or she may suffer flu-like symptoms that disappear after leaving the area. Unfortunately, prolonged exposure can lead to a brain injury that affects memory and learning functions, and the resulting neurological impairment is sometimes permanent.
