How Long Does Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Stay Bound To Hemoglobin
Long time: Carbon monoxide binds to hemoglobin 200 times more tightly than oxygen. It is quite likely that the red cell with carbon monoxide bound hemoglobin will die out before it loses carbon monoxide.
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
Likely none: Carbon monoxide acts by keeping red blood cells from picking up oxygen so it hurts you by starving the body for oxygen. Once the co separates off the red cell it starts working again and theprocess stops. It the lack of oxygen was severe enough to cause damage to parts of the body it will take time for that to be repaired, but otherwise there shouldn't be long-term problems.
Includes:: Some develop a parkinsonian appearance mimicking true parkinson's tremors and rigidity. Cognitive problem such as memory loss and poor organizational skills may occur. Incoordination and imbalance may be problems, and chronic headaches are not uncommon.
Depends: The duration of symptoms depends on the concentration of carbon monoxide in the blood stream, the duration of exposure and how quickly you are removed from the carbon monoxide environment.
Depends on severity: Mild or moderate symptoms can last from less than an hour to many hours, depending on the severity of the carbon monoxide (co) poisoning, the type of treatment, the victim's other health issues, etc... Studies show the half-life of carboxyhemoglobin (co bound to hemoglobin) to be about 4 hours (3-5 hr) when breathing regular air, and about 1 hour (30-90 minutes) when breathing 100% oxygen.See 1 more doctor answer
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.).
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.
Too long to make: Either suicide or homicide worthwhile. Please call your state's suicide hotline at (877) 870-4673 or go to a hospital ER by ambulance or as a passenger in a private car now if you are contemplating methods of suicide. Be safe.
No: Carbon monoxide poisoning is an environmental toxin. You can only be poisoned by breathing it in an environment contaminated by carbon monoxide.
Unlikely: But chronic carbon monoxide exposure needs urgent correction and reversal due to risk of injury to cognitive brain function, and potential of Parkinson's disease-like problems.See 1 more doctor answer
Could I still die from carbon monoxide poisoning with new cars that have the catalytic converters?
Hooka: It does increase carbon monoxide level in the your blood. The severity will depend on how much of the smoke you inhale, how fast and how long you hold your breath each time you take an inhalation from the water pipe. carbon monoxide poisoning has a range of severity (single digits up to fatal level of 50% or more when the person is trapped in a house on fire).
Yes: Carbon monoxide (co) stays tightly bound to hemoglobin, forming carboxyhemoglobin. Co comes off the hemoglobin gradually as the hours go by. Studies show carboxyhemoglobin's half-life to be about 4 hours (3-5 hr) in regular air, but about 1 hour (30-90 minutes) when breathing 100% oxygen for treatment of co poisoning. Increased oxygen makes the co come off the hemoglobin and leave the body sooner.See 1 more doctor answer
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.

Probably not: But you don't give enough information. I would assume you have a gas stove. You give no symptoms. If you have headache, dizziness, and nausea, these are the most common symptoms. If you can improve the ventilation in the home and do not leave the stove on. Please note these symptoms are also common with other things as well.
