Healthy Living: Reversing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Every year in the United States, about 400 people die from carbon monoxide poisoning.

While cases spike in the north this time of year because home heaters are on full blast, it’s a danger everywhere year-round.

Some people don’t even know they’re affected until it’s too late. 

In Healthy Living, Courtney Hunter breaks down a procedure doctors can recommend to reverse poisoning symptoms.

Cathy says she does not park a keyless car in her garage and advises others to do the same.

Carbon monoxide comes from gas burning in poorly ventilated areas.

Dr. Jain says carbon monoxide detectors can detect when levels are too high and should be installed in homes in addition to smoke detectors.
