There are several reasons why the media and industry experts have named carbon monoxide the ´´silent killer´´ it is a gas that cannot be sensed, yet it has the ability to kill people even while they are asleep in their homes. The gas is emitted by commonly used appliances, and if left without proper ventilation or detection mechanisms carbon monoxide builds up and people get exposed not even realizing it. Experts claim that in order to decrease the number of deaths resulting from this poisoning, it would be wise to invest in specific devices that would detect the presence of the gas and provide early warnings. In order to find out more about carbon monoxide and its poisoning read this book.
