Gambit News: "Unseen Menace: Carbon Monoxide Poisoning"

Carbon monoxide is a gas byproduct from the incomplete combustion of fossil fuels. Common sources of acute and often lethal carbon monoxide poisoning include generators whose fumes to enter a house; kerosene heaters being used indoors; charcoal being burned inside a house; and cars left running in a garage, even with the door open.
Exposure to the toxic gas is less obvious when a gas heater or stove is not working properly, or when a fuel-burning appliance is not burning clean. In those cases, enough carbon monoxide can leak to cause chronic poisoning, but not severe, acute poisoning.
