What are the effects of carbon monoxide?

Carbon monoxide connects with red blood cells, stealing oxygen from your body it needs to live. It mixes with these cells more than 200 times more effortlessly than oxygen, resulting in a condition known as carboxyhemoglobin saturation.

Carbon monoxide, instead of oxygen, then gets taken to the important organs via the bloodstream. Simply put, carbon monoxide deprives your body of oxygen. Organs have to have oxygen; when they lack it, they begin to suffocate.

Your body requires a long time to eradicate carbon monoxide; however, it can be absorbed much more rapidly.
