In this installment I review the chemical characteristics of carbon monoxide (CO), along with an overview of atmospheric monitoring. The topic takes a path of proper response and mitigation procedures, as well as the proper PPE to wear on a CO call. I also talk about finer points of medical treatment for victims who were exposed to CO as well as some statistics regarding annual CO deaths and hospital visits. Plus much more on CO in this installment. Enjoy!
