What are the long-term effects of carbon monoxide poisoning?

What are the long-term effects of carbon monoxide poisoning?

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. ...Read more

Kidney (Definition)

The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more

What are the long term effects of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning?

What are the long term effects of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning?

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. ...Read more

Can you get carbon monoxide poisoning from using the oven for long periods?

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

How long do you need to be exposed to carbon monoxide to develop carbon monoxide poisoning?

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

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. ...Read more

Approximately how long would it take to die from carbon monoxide poisoning through car exhaust?

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. ...Read more

Carbon monoxide poisoning symptoms how long do they last?

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. ...Read more

How long do the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning take to go away?

How long do the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning take to go away?

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. ...Read more

Can you tell me the physical effects of carbon monoxide poisoning before death?

Sleep: When carbon monoxide replaces the oxygen in your blood cells, your system slows down and you fall into a sleep like coma with eventual death. The hemoglobin with carbon monoxide is very red in color so death in this way causes a very florid flushing appearance of the victim. ...Read more

What are the physical effects of carbon monoxide poisoning if you survive?

What are the physical effects of carbon monoxide poisoning if you survive?

Depends on dose: The long term effects of co poisoning depend on the dose and duration of exposure. Exposure to small doses at the lower limits of toxicity (35 parts per million for 8 hours) may cause only mild symptoms while higher doses (> 200 ppm) may have long term consequences. See this page for more details: http://biology. About. Com/od/molecularbiology/a/carbon_monoxide. Htm. ...Read more

Please tell me what are effects of carbon monoxide poisoning?

Please tell me what are effects of carbon monoxide poisoning?

Exposure: Carbon monoxide has a stronger affinity (bonding) to the red cells hemoglobin molecule than oxygen, so the presence of increased levels of carbon monoxide in air can gradually displace the oxygen. As it circulates in the blood, the hemoglobin is not carrying useful oxygen, so the cells starve and the poisoning occurs. Cell death can occur if oxygen does not return in time. ...Read more

What causes carbon monoxide poisoning to cause vomiting?

Lack of oxygen: It is the lack of usuable oxygen to your tissues. The hemoglobin in your red blood cells bind the carbon monoxide but it sticks so strongly that it cannot get unloaded in the tissues where it's needed. Your organs then go into anaerobic (without oxygen) metabolism and the waste product is lactic acid. This as well adds to the vomiting. ...Read more

What test can comfirm/rule out carbon monoxide poisoning?

Carboxyhemaglobin: A simple blood test, carboxyhemaglobin, give a precise measure of how much carbon monoxide is in the blood. ...Read more

What are the best home remedies for carbon monoxide poisoning?

CO poisoning: Carbon monoxide (co) poisoning is a serious problem with acute and long-term complications. If there any suspicion that you may have co poisoning you need to get to a hospital immediately and get the proper treatment. Do not waste time with home "remedies" because time is off the essence. Of course getting out and away from the source of co to get fresh air (oxygen) is the immediate best response. ...Read more

Left stove on 14 hours, could this have caused carbon monoxide poisoning?

Maybe: Gas stoves could be faulty. Get your home checked for carbon monoxide levels. Detectors are available at numerous hardware stores, and by most codes, should be present in homes. Your utility company could also check the situation. ...Read more

How do I report carbon monoxide poisoning if I think I was poisoned at work?

Carbon monoxide: Speak to your supervisor. Testing for the environment for carbon monoxide levels is relatively simple and could be affecting other. Carbon monoxide detectors can be installed for future monitoring. ...Read more

Before you die do you have any signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning?

Yes: Low level carbon monoxide exposure can cause headaches and nausea, higher levels can result in cherry red coloring of fingertips and nail beds. Later, confusion and disorientation. ...Read more

Can heat production in the oven part of the stove cause carbon monoxide poisoning?

Depends: Unlikely in an electric stove. Household appliances, such as gas fires, boilers, central heating systems, water heaters, cookers and open fires which use gas, oil, coal and wood may be possible sources of carbon monoxide gas. It happens when the fuel does not burn fully. Hope this helps. ...Read more

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

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. ...Read more

How can I be sure that I don t have brain damage from carbon monoxide poisoning?

How can I be sure that I don t have brain damage from carbon monoxide poisoning?

Consult your doctor: I would recommend discussing this with your doctor or a neurologist. Carbon monoxide poisoning may cause damage to specific areas in the brain and may be diagnosed with a head ct or preferably a brain mri. A radiologic study, however, does not replace appropriate medical consultation and evaluation. ...Read more
