A Vancouver WA Home Builder Wants You to Know the Symptoms of CO Poisoning

In our last blog post we explained the dangers of carbon monoxide exposure during the winter months. This post will further cover the signs and symptoms of CO exposure.

The first symptoms of minor CO poisoning may appear similar to the flu, without the presence of a fever.

Your symptoms of minor exposure might include:

  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

Extreme CO poisoning can result severe symptoms, including:

  • Mental confusion
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of muscular coordination
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Ultimately death

Severity of symptoms will depend on the CO levels in the home, as well as length of exposure.
