Carbon monoxide attaches to red blood cells, stealing oxygen from your body it has to have to live. It combines with these cells nearly 200 times more effortlessly than oxygen, resulting in a condition known as carboxyhemoglobin saturation.
Carbon monoxide, in place of oxygen, then gets carried to the vital organs through the bloodstream. Simply put, carbon monoxide robs your body of oxygen. Organs have to have 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.
