If you are dizzy from carbon monoxide poisoning, do you still have time to get out before you pass out?

Yes: In general, dizziness is achieved with several hours of low dose exposure -- such as 35 parts per million. Nausea and convulsions along with dizziness will be seen in <1 hour of 800 parts per million exposure. So, the symptoms vary based on amount of exposure and time duration of the exposure.
