Carbon monoxide attaches to red blood cells, robbing your body of the oxygen it requires to live. It combines with these cells nearly 200 times more smoothly than oxygen, resulting in a condition known as carboxyhemoglobin saturation.
Carbon monoxide, on lieu of oxygen, then gets taken to the vital organs via the bloodstream. To put it simply, carbon monoxide robs your body of oxygen. Organs have to have oxygen; when they don’t have it, they begin to suffocate.
It takes your body a long time to eliminate carbon monoxide; however, it can be absorbed much faster.
