Carbn Dioxide (CO) poisoning is the number one cause of accidental poisoning in the United States and is responsible for an average of 400 deaths, and an additional 20,000 people seek medical attention anually.Sadly,nearly three-quarters (73 percent) of CO exposure is in the home, and more than two-fifths (41 percent) occurs during the winter months of December, January and February.
CO poisoning can be difficult to diagnose because symptoms mimic those of many other illnesses, including the flu, and can include nausea,headaches, dizziness, weakness, chest pain and vomiting. Most important it occurs sooner in those most susceptible: young children, elderly people,people with lung or heart disease, people at high altitudes or those who already have elevated CO blood levels, such as smokers. CO poisoning also poses a special risk to fetuses.
Because of all of this it’s important to keep your loved ones protected! The NFPA (www.nfpa.org) recommends one CO alarm on each level of the home and in a central location outside each sleeping area such as in a hallway outside the bedroom. For premium protection against carbon monoxide poisoning, First Alert offers a 10-Year Alarm Life Sealed Battery Compact Carbon Monoxide Alarm. The brand’s first solely battery-powered 10-year CO alarm, this device features a digital display that shows detected CO levels in parts per million.
The unit uses an electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor – the most accurate technology available – and allows you to capture and retrieve the highest CO levels recorded in your home through the peak function. The stylish and versatile carbon monoxide alarm also displays ambient temperature on an everyday basis while protecting households from CO exposure.
Equipped with the long-life sealed lithium battery to power the alarm for a full 10 years without need for replacement, the carbon monoxide alarm is a step above the competition in product life expectancy.
