What are the effects of carbon monoxide?

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

Carbon monoxide, instead of oxygen, then gets brought to the critical organs by the bloodstream. To put it simply, carbon monoxide starves your body of oxygen. Organs have to have oxygen; when they lack it, they begin to suffocate.

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