Carbon monoxide, one of the most abundant pollutant gas, is indetectable to humans as it can not be seen, smelled or tasted. Exposure to high levels of CO can cause CO poisoning leading to serious health issues, giving it the name “The Silent Killer”. The only way to know if you are at risk of CO exposure is carbon monoxide monitoring.
What is CO?
Carbon monoxide, CO, is a colorless, odorless, non-irritating and tasteless poisonous gas found in the atmosphere. It is one of the critical air pollutants produced by incomplete combustion of carbon-containing fuels such as coal, gasoline, natural gas, oil, and wood.
