Carbon monoxide, or CO, is an odorless, colorless gas that can cause sudden illness and death. Carbon monoxide is found in combustion fumes, such as those produced by cars and trucks, small gasoline engines, stoves, lanterns, burning charcoal and wood, gas ranges, gas dryers, gas water heaters, and heating systems. Carbon monoxide from these sources can build and people and animals in these spaces can be poisoned by breathing the CO. Symptoms of CO poisoning in healthy people vary from fatigue at low carbon monoxide concentrations to irritability at moderate levels and death at very high concentrations.
