Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Advice, Symptoms & Who To Call

What is carbon monoxide (CO)?

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a highly poisonous gas produced by the incomplete burning of natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). This can happen when a gas appliance has been incorrectly fitted, badly repaired or poorly maintained. It can also occur if flues, chimneys or vents are blocked. Solid fuels, such as coal, wood, petrol, as well as oil, can also produce carbon monoxide when they burn.

CO can be deadly and is especially dangerous because you can’t see, taste or smell it, and some symptoms mimic the effects of viruses and even a bad hangover. It’s important to know the physical symptoms of CO poisoning to ensure you seek help quickly.

What are the physical symptoms of CO poisoning?

CO poisoning occurs when you breathe in CO and it replaces the oxygen in your bloodstream, causing body tissue and cells to die. Even small amounts of the gas can cause poisoning, and long term exposure can result in paralysis, brain damage and death.

CO poisoning symptoms are similar to those of flu, food poisoning, viral infections, fatigue, and a hangover which makes it easy to mistake this very dangerous poisoning for something else.

The six main symptoms to look out for are:

  1. Headaches
  2. Dizziness
  3. Nausea
  4. Breathlessness
  5. Collapse
  6. Loss of consciousness

Anybody who has overdone it on a night out will be familiar with some or all of those symptoms, but if you experience them without drinking it’s time to be concerned. Being aware of these symptoms could save your life.

There are also other signs that could indicate CO poisoning, such as:

  • Symptoms occur when you are at home but seem to disappear when you leave.
  • Others in your household (including pets) are experiencing similar symptoms at a similar time.

It’s important to know the signs of a carbon monoxide leak in your home, because knowing the signs can ensure you aren’t exposed to dangerous levels of CO for an extended period of time.

What are the signs of a carbon monoxide leak?

Any of the following could be a sign of CO in your home:

  • Floppy yellow or orange flame on your gas hob, rather than crisp blue
  • Dark, sooty staining on or around gas appliances
  • Pilot lights that frequently blow out
  • Increased condensation inside windows

If you detect any of these signs, please contact a Gas Safe registered engineer immediately to come and inspect your gas appliances and flues. If you are a Platform rented customer and we are responsible for your repairs, please contact us 0333 200 7304 to report an emergency repair, or - if you think there is an immediate danger - call the Gas Emergency Helpline on 0800 111 999. Once any immediate danger is addressed you will need to contact Platform to arrange for a further inspection and reinstatement of service.

If you are a leaseholder, shared owner or otherwise responsible for your own repairs, you can find engineers who are qualified to investigate the presence of CO on the Check The Register page of the Gas Safe Register website.

What to do if you suspect CO poisoning

  • Don’t delay - get fresh air immediately.
  • Open doors and windows, turn off gas appliances and leave the house.
  • See your doctor immediately or go to hospital. They can do a blood or breath test to check and can advise if you need treatment for CO poisoning.
  • If you think there is an immediate danger, call the Gas Emergency Helpline on 0800 111 999 (this number is free from all UK landlines and mobiles)

You can also visit the NHS website for detailed information on the symptoms of CO poisoning, what action to take and the treatment that’s usually provided.
