What are the effects of carbon monoxide?

Carbon monoxide connects with red blood cells, robbing oxygen from your body it has to have to thrive. It combines with these cells more than 200 times more smoothly than oxygen, creating a condition known as carboxyhemoglobin saturation.

Carbon monoxide, on lieu of oxygen, then gets taken to the critical organs through the bloodstream. In short, carbon monoxide robs your body of oxygen. Organs have to have oxygen; when they lack it, they begin to suffocate.

Your body takes a long time to eliminate carbon monoxide; however, it can be taken in much more quickly.
