PEORIA, Ariz. - July 19, 2013 - PRLog -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of another online video to help educate people about issues that may impact their health.  Their latest educational video discusses carbon monoxide and its effect on humans.

According to the CDC, each year more than 400 Americans die from unintentional carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, more than 20,000 visit the emergency room and more than 4,000 are hospitalized due to CO poisoning. Fatalities are highest among people 65 and older.

Carbon Monoxide is found in combustion fumes, such as those produced by cars and trucks, small gasoline engines, stoves, lanterns, burning charcoal and wood, and gas ranges and heating systems. CO from these sources can build up in an enclosed or semi-enclosed space and people or animals in these spaces can be poisoned by breathing it.

“Unless suspected, CO poisoning can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms mimic other illnesses,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.  “Certain groups, such as unborn babies, infants, and people with chronic heart disease, anemia, or respiratory problems are more susceptible to its effects. We hope this new video helps to educate people about the hazards associated with high levels of carbon monoxide.”
