What should I do if I think I've been exposed to CO?
If you think you are experiencing any of the symptoms of CO poisoning, get fresh air immediately. Leave your home and call 911 to report your symptoms and the possibility of CO exposure. If you do not have a cell phone to make the call, ask a neighbor if you can use their phone. You could lose consciousness and die if you stay in the home.
It is also important to contact a doctor immediately or go to the emergency room for a proper diagnosis. Tell your doctor that you suspect CO poisoning is causing your symptoms. Quick medical attention is important if you are experiencing any symptoms of CO poisoning. If the doctor confirms CO poisoning, make sure a qualified service person checks the appliances for proper operation before using them.
