what are the symptoms of carbon monoxide (co) poisoning?


Carbon materials are poisoned by chemical processes or combustion of a gas which is harmful to human health resulting from burning. There is no odor, no color is invisible, so it can not be felt. CO gas is easier to bind to hemoglobins in the lungs than to oxygen and prevents the person from getting oxygen. With the decline of calm oxygen, the structures that require oxygen, especially the muscles, are unable to function. If the oxygen deficiency is not visible in the brain, it can lead to permanent damage and brain edema may be a problem.

Where the CO gas is spread, the gas density is much thicker than the gas. Staying for a very short period of time will cause the body to struggle for a long time. The amount of carboxyhemoglobin in the human body is 0.5-1.5%, but in smokers it is 4-9%. Carbon monoxide poisoning starts at the rate of 15% and death reaches 60%.

Emergency oxygen supply to the poisoning person is necessary. This process should be continued for 40-50 minutes with 100% oxygen.


CO quantities and actual situations:

Nausea, fatigue, emotional imbalance in 10-20%
20-30% headache, vision problems, loss of sensation, increase in environmental adaptation, loss of power, decrease in reflex movements
30-40% indecision headache, dizziness, vomiting
40-50% loss of consciousness, tachypnea, fainting
Coma and death in 50-60%
60% and over death.

Brain and heart films must be taken in the treatment of poisoned persons. Poisoning is the most important part of vital activities, brain and heart damage lasting.
