Carbon Monoxide
MeSH HeadingCarbon Monoxide
Tree NumberD01.200.250
Tree NumberD01.362.200
Tree NumberD01.650.550.250
Annotationa poisonous gas; / tox permitted but consider also CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING
Scope NoteCarbon monoxide ( CO). A poisonous colorless, odorless, tasteless gas. It combines with hemoglobin to form carboxyhemoglobin, which has no oxygen carrying capacity. The resultant oxygen deprivation causes headache, dizziness, decreased pulse and respiratory rates, unconsciousness, and death. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
