Carbon monoxide blocks the transport of oxygen in the blood. Poisoning causes headaches, dizziness, nausea and unconsciousness – and in the worst case, death by suffocation. The symptoms are rarely noticed, especially during sleep. There are tragic cases of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is produced, among other things, when materials such as wood, coal or gas burn without sufficient oxygen, for example in closed rooms or with defective heating systems.
