  1. 1. Carbon Monoxide Padua, Rizza Mae
  2. 2.  odorless, tasteless, and colorless gas is known as the "silent killer.“ produced by common household appliances. When not properly ventilated, carbon monoxide emitted by these appliances can build up.Carbon Monoxide
  3. 3.  occurs after enough inhalation of carbon monoxide (CO).Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
  4. 4. Signs and Symptoms
  5. 5.  Initial treatment for carbon monoxide poisoning is to immediately remove the person from the exposure without endangering further people. Those who are unconscious may require CPR on site.Administering oxygen via non-rebreather mask shortens the half life of carbon monoxide to 80 minutes from 320 minutes on normal air.[21] Oxygen hastens the dissociation of carbon monoxide from carboxyhemoglobin, thus turning it back into hemoglobin.Due to the possible severe effects in the fetus, pregnant women are treated with oxygen for longer periods of time than non-pregnant people.Treatment
  6. 6.  it is possible that anoxia could affect the teeth. Were the body of a carbon monoxide poisoned individual was described as having "pink teeth", a result of the carbon monoxide in the vascular system of the tooth.Dental Correlation
