CO is a very poisonous toxic gas that is the byproduct of incomplete combustion. Although it is not toxic to all forms of life, it turns harmful due to binding with hemoglobin. It easily gets absorbed through lungs. Inhaling the gas can lead to hypoxic injury, nervous system damage, and even death.

There are a lot of ways to prevent CO poisoning
1. Install battery back-up CO detector.
2. Do not use portable flameless chemical heaters indoors.
4. Never use a portable gas camp stove indoors.
5. Never burn charcoal indoors.
6. Have your chimney checked or cleaned every year.

These are just a few methods. Likewise, there are lot more ways. It is always better to take prevention from such attacks rather than getting cured of it.
