Can You Get Carbon Monoxide Poisoning From A Gas Stove
Same as from a fire.: :) co displaces 02 (oxygen) from the hemoglobin on red blood cells so they cannot transport oxygen to the tissues of the body. Co binds much more tightly, so takes a long time to come off on its own. Roughly speaking, the body is asphyxiated by lack of available oxygen to the cells that need it. ...Read more
Toxic ingestion (also called "poisoning") is a condition in which a person has eaten or drank a substance that causes ill symptoms or damage to his body. Taking an overdose of a medicine, taking any dose of a poison, drinking too much vodka, or accidentally drinking antifreeze . . . are all ...Read more
Propane fumes: Yes. Poisoning depends on the amount of propane fumes, the length of time of exposure, the concentration of the fumes, whether there is any ventilation, and the age and health of the person exposed. ...Read more
Typically not: While this is possible, proper ventilation and maintenance should prevent carbon monoxide from forming and building up. A home carbon monoxide detector can help make sure you are not in danger. ...Read more
Usually not: Carbon monoxide results from combustion of organic matter with restricted oxygen supply. Sources of carbon monoxide include cigarettes, faulty furnaces, heaters, vehicle exhaust, electrical generators, propane-fueled equipment such as portable stoves, and gasoline powered tools. ...Read more
Hard to say: The body is able to tolerate the low level exposures to CO over time with no specific hardship.Any study of its potential effects is hampered by overlapping bad habits of smokers & the inability to isolate cause/effect in a scientific study.It is well known that there are dozens of toxic chemicals released in the smoke, besides the nicotine. Over time the negative consequences of these toxins kill ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Could i still die from carbon monoxide poisoning with new cars that have the catalytic converters?
Poor oxygen supply: Carbon dioxide causes its toxic effects by reducing the ability of the blood to carry oxygen. In areas of the brain that are affected by poor blood flow (by atherosclerosis, etc), further reducing oxygen delivery can lead to a stroke. Severe carbon monoxide poisoning can cause stroke even in healthy brain. ...Read more

Not long: Carbon monoxide has a high affinity to the hemoglobin molecule, not allowing the oxygen molecules to bind. Exactly how long before one gets carbon monoxide poisoning depends on many factors including the health of the individual exposed and the concentration of the carbon monoxide. Avoid exposure by never burning anything inside a house (bbq, etc.). ...Read more
Ventilation: Only if there is impaired exhaust of the products of combustion can a room develop co accumulation and the possibility of poisoning. Ventilation should always be to code to prevent this from happening.

Yes: Volatile fumes from gasoline, glue, paint, etc..., are bad because they diffuse throughout the body after inhalation. The fumes one smells at a gas station are diluted by the air, so don't cause illness. If one purposely sniffs gasoline or glue, or accidentally gets too much fumes while painting inside a closet, he can get damage to the lungs, brain, etc..., especially with repeated exposures. ...Read more
