What are the effects of carbon monoxide?

Carbon monoxide connects with red blood cells, stealing oxygen from your body it needs to live. It blends with these cells more than 200 times more effortlessly than oxygen, creating a condition known as carboxyhemoglobin saturation.

Carbon monoxide, instead of oxygen, then gets carried to the critical organs by the bloodstream. In short, carbon monoxide robs your body of oxygen. Organs need oxygen; when they lack it, they begin to suffocate.

Your body takes a long time to eradicate carbon monoxide; however, it can be absorbed much faster.
