Carbon Monoxide



Every year, more than 500 Americans die from accidental exposure to carbon monoxide and thousands more require emergency medical care for non-fatal carbon monoxide poisoning. In fact, Carbon Monoxide intoxication is the most common cause of accidental poisoning.

Our Tracking data includes accidental Carbon monoxide poisioning injuries and deaths from those events that involved fire (fire-related) and those that did not involve fire (non-fire related). Injuries received from breathing in exhaust gases from cars, boats, or generators are examples of non-fire events. We have also included Carbon Monoxide deaths and injuries for cases where it is not known if the event was accidental or intentional.
