What are the effects of carbon monoxide?

Carbon monoxide connects with red blood cells, robbing your body of the oxygen it needs to survive. It mixes with these cells more than 200 times more effortlessly than oxygen, creating a condition known as carboxyhemoglobin saturation.

Carbon monoxide, on lieu 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; without it, they begin to suffocate.

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