What are the effects of carbon monoxide?

Carbon monoxide attaches to red blood cells, robbing oxygen from your body it has to have to live. It blends with these cells nearly 200 times more effortlessly than oxygen, leading to a condition known as carboxyhemoglobin saturation.

Carbon monoxide, instead of oxygen, then gets brought to the vital organs by the bloodstream. To put it simply, carbon monoxide deprives your body of oxygen. Organs have to have oxygen; when they lack it, they begin to suffocate.

Your body needs a long time to eradicate carbon monoxide; however, it can be taken in much more rapidly.
