Carbon Monoxide (CO) Poisoning


Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is a condition very dangerous to a person's health. Because CO bonds with red blood cells nearly 200 times more easily than oxygen, once CO gets into one's system, it is very difficult to get it out. Because carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas, pilots must be alert to the symptoms of CO poisoning as well as having a working CO detection system installed in their aircraft.
