What is the most dangerous air poisoning in a mining site?
According to our research the Carbon Monoxide (CO)

What is Carbon Monoxide?
It is a colourless, odourless, and tasteless gas that is slightly less dense than air. In the atmosphere, CO is produced from incomplete combustion and is present in exhaust gasses of vehicles and other engines, as well as from the combustion of most fuels. It is also produced in low quantities as part of normal metabolic processes.

If encountered in concentrations above 35ppm it is highly toxic to haemoglobic animals (including humans). The most common symptoms of CO poisoning include headaches, vomiting, dizziness, confusion, disorientation, visual disturbance, fainting, and seizures to name a few. CO poisoning is the most common type of fatal air poisoning. Once CO is inhaled, CO combines with haemoglobin to produce carboxyhaemoglobin, which becomes ineffective at delivering oxygen around the body. Oxygen levels are displaced in the blood causing vital organs to starve and therefore, causing people to suffocate and lose consciousness. CO poisoning is often irreversible as CO molecules will not detach from haemoglobin.

Rest in peace to our kabayan!
