In brief: Active tissue death

Carbon monoxide causes its toxic effects by preventing the effective transport of oxygen, and as such causes damage to tissue that is highly metabolically active (and requires more oxygen to stay alive).
This leads to strokes, heart damage, and kidney damage. Chronic low-level exposure can lead to cognitive problems, increased cardiovascular risk, and other issues.
