    Carbon Monoxide

    Carbon monoxide is a gas which is released as part of the incomplete burning of certain fuels.  These fuels can include wood, coal, oils and gasses and can be present in a multitude of environments including the home and work place.

    Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    Carbon monoxide poisoning is the result of being exposed to carbon monoxide.  As it is a colourless and odourless gas it is often impossible to detect, unless you have a carbon monoxide detector present.

    Many people are not aware that there is carbon monoxide present in their immediate environment until they are suffering from the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning.

    These symptoms can include:

    • Shortness of breath and general difficulty breathing
    • Headaches
    • Nausea
    • Dizziness
    • Vomiting
    • Abdominal pain
    • Tiredness
    • Confusion

    Unfortunately as you will know for yourself and no doubt from experience, some of these symptoms can easily be confused with other ailments.  For example, if you had been out drinking the night before and were suffering from a headache, vomiting, abdominal pain, confusion and tiredness you might just assume you had consumed just a little too much of your favourite alcoholic beverage.

    Without a carbon monoxide detector you would not even think of carbon monoxide poisoning as being the cause of your ailments and symptom.  Unfortunately many people do not recognise the signs, or assume they are indicative of something else, and fail to act.

    Our injury solicitors in St Monans are only too well aware that if left untreated and undetected, carbon monoxide poisoning can prove fatal within a matter of minutes.

    Treatment

    If you suspect that you have been exposed to carbon monoxide you must immediately get to a well-ventilated area to avoid breathing in any further fumes.  This simple action should result in you feeling better almost immediately, but you should still consult the advice of a doctor or other medical professional as quickly as possible.  Perhaps calling an ambulance and using the oxygen tanks provided by paramedics to help get oxygen rich blood circulating around your body again.

    You should also report the incident to the relevant authorities to ensure that the cause of the carbon monoxide build up can be rectified, and prevented from occurring again.
