We use carbon on a daily basis at an alarming rate. Carbon-based substances are mainly used in combustion. During the combustion process, two types of carbon gases form–carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide has its uses and disadvantages whereas carbon monoxide is a silent killer. Inhaling Carbon monoxide at low concentration can make you nauseous while it is lethal at higher quantities.
Is Testing Carbon Monoxide Necessary?
These reasons for Carbon Monoxide testing at home are an eye opener for all:-
- This carbon emission is colorless, odorless, tasteless and doesn’t cause any type of distress when you inhale it.
- It inhibits blood from absorbing oxygen into cells, tissue and all vital organs.
- When that occurs, you would not be a position to react or call anyone since all the organs in the body start to dysfunction.
- A high concentration of carbon monoxide accumulation will lead to loss of consciousness, headaches, dizziness, fatigue and finally death.
- Low levels of Carbon Monoxide cause chronic symptoms like headaches, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and weakness.
