Carbon monoxide poisoning is often called the “invisible killer” because it is odorless and death can occur before you realize what is happening. Carbon monoxide can invade your home without your knowing. In many instances, exposure to carbon monoxide is the result of a defective product or another person’s negligence. Carbon monoxide emits from furnaces, kitchen appliances, grills, fireplaces, camping stoves, hot water heaters, indoor heating systems, and the exhaust from all types of vehicles. Firefighters, factory workers, and mechanics come into contact with carbon monoxide at their places of work.
Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning can include any of the following:
- cognitive problems
- frequent headaches
- change of mood or personality
