Detecting Carbon Monoxide and Poisoning Symptoms
The slow seepage of carbon monoxide is undetectable because it has no odour or colour. Most people do not realise that carbon monoxide may be present in their homes, hotel rooms, workplaces and other areas, until they begin experiencing symptoms. Even then, many symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning such as nausea, dizziness, light headedness and sleepiness can be mistaken for other common ailments. Sadly and all too often, carbon monoxide poisoning goes undetected until it is too late and a fatality has occurred.
