In brief: Chemical anemia

Carbon monoxide replaces oxygen in red cells and causes chemical anemia.
Mild cases may be asymptomatic. It may start as weakness, dizziness, shortness of breath, cherry red coloration of skin, loss of consciousness and in severe cases, death. Chronic poisoning may cause parkinson disease.
