The month of January is considered to be the worst month of the year for carbon monoxide poisoning.

 

Unintentional carbon monoxide exposure claims on average 439 lives per year in the United States with many more people landing in emergency rooms for treatment, according to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention. Risk factors are at their highest this time of year.

 

Carbon Monoxide is odorless, but is sometimes associated with the smell of natural gas. Symptoms include headache, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pains and confusion. If you experience any of those common symptoms, she says to immediately leave the residence and call 911.

 

The CDC recommends you install a battery operated C O detector and replace the batteries in the spring or fall during time change, but if you haven't replaced them in a while, now is a great time to do so.
