Can COPD patient on oxygen get carbon monoxide poison?

Not usually. Carbon monoxide is found in cigarette smoke, out of car exhausts, and other places. Simply being on oxygen doesn't mean that you can get carbon monoxide poisoning, unless you get exposed to it.
YEs. But it is not related to the use of home o2. Co poisoning can occur with the use of a poorly ventilated room while using propane space heaters or from car exhaust that has escaped into the living space. Of course any one that is immobilized should be monitored for any envirnonmental hazzards they can not quickly get away from.

Can oxygen help in treating carbon monoxide poisoning?

Yes. Particularly high flow oxygen (delivered by a face mask) as this will decrease the half-life (time carbon monoxide stays in the system) dramatically. Read more...
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. Read more...

Can steady exposure to carbon monoxide cause respiratory problems like emphysema, copd, asthma?

CO. Carbon monoxide is lethal, you cannot have a steady exposure to it. Respiratory problem results from air pollution, no matter what kind it is. Read more...
Would never happen. Carbon monoxide has strong affinity to the hemoglobin and its diffusibility through membrane is high. Before any other condition like asthma, COPD can occur from it, a person is dead. There will be no study to prove that. Read more...

Could I have carbon monoxide poisoning if I don't get furnace checked yearly?

Possibly. Long-term, low-level co poisoning is possible with an inefficient furnace or if its exhaust is blocked. A common but not 100% symptom is frequent headaches and loss of energy. Read more...
CO poisoning. If the furnace malfunctions it is possible that it may emit more carbon monoxide than usuall and lead toxicity. Consider having a carbon monoxide detector in the house (install one on each floor of your house). 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...

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.

Could you get carbon monoxide and poisoned if you are in a car behind another car that's on with a very bad exhaust fumes?

In an enclosed place. Outdoors, it is unlikely to happen. In an enclosed place, such as a garage (or if you run your engine while fully encased in snow), it is more likely to happen. Outdoors, the air is flowing and the wind is blowing, so the concentration of carbon monoxide gets diluted before it reaches your nose. Remember, carbon monoxide has no odor. It has no odor at all. The exhaust odor is other chemicals. Read more...
