Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in Jacksonville

Carbon monoxide is called the silent killer. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas produced by the incomplete combustion of a fossil fuel (wood, oil, gas or coal.) It acts by rendering a person gradually unconscious as a result of exposure. Regetfully many people never recover from the being unconscious. Hence CO has become known as “the silent killer”.

Carbon Monoxide is a dangerous gas that can quickly cause serious injury and even death upon exposure. It is present in all restaurants, apartment complexes, and houses throughout the State. From boilers to household ovens, carbon monoxide is most often found coming from fuel burning appliances, and while this is a normal aspect of many products, defects and poor maintenance may result in this harmful gas leaking out. Those who are exposed to a high amount of carbon monoxide, especially in closed areas, can quickly suffer brain injuries, sickness and even die without proper medical care.

Prolonged exposure: Confusion, drowsiness, elevated breathing, elevated heartbeat, chest pain, vision problems, seizures and death.
