Our Michigan carbon monoxide poisoning lawyers often investigate serious injury cases relating to carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas-a by-product of incomplete combustion that interferes with the delivery of oxygen in the blood to the rest of the body. As a result it is often referred to as the "silent killer". These toxic exposures often result in physical problems, neurological problems, and even death.
Michigan Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Symptoms
Carbon monoxide interferes with the distribution of oxygen in the blood to the rest of the body. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning can sometimes confused with the flu or food poisoning. Depending on the amount inhaled, this gas can cause:
- Chest Pain
- Impede Coordination
- Worsen Cardiovascular Conditions
How Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Is Produced
Carbon monoxide poisoning is produced as a result of incomplete burning of carbon-containing fuels including coal, wood, charcoal, natural gas, and fuel oil. It can be emitted by combustion sources such as unvented kerosene and gas space heaters, furnaces, wood stoves, gas stoves, fireplaces and water heaters, automobile exhaust from attached garages, and tobacco smoke. Problems can arise as a result of improper installation, maintenance, or inadequate ventilation.
