Carbon monoxide (CO) is a gas without smell, color, or taste and does not irritate the respiratory tract. Because of this, it poses a significant risk. There is no way to see, smell, or taste it. The threats become more severe as the temperatures plunge. Poisoning from carbon monoxide is a real risk, and its symptoms may be quite serious.
Poisoning symptoms may range from minor to severe. It's difficult to tell what's going on at first since the symptoms are so nonspecific.
