What are the effects of carbon monoxide?

Carbon monoxide attaches to red blood cells, robbing your body of the oxygen it requires to thrive. It mixes with these cells more than 200 times more effortlessly than oxygen, leading to a condition known as carboxyhemoglobin saturation.

Carbon monoxide, on lieu of oxygen, then gets brought to the important organs by the bloodstream. Simply put, carbon monoxide starves your body of oxygen. Organs need oxygen; without it, they begin to suffocate.

It takes your body a long time to eradicate carbon monoxide; however, it can be absorbed much more rapidly.
