Anyone with severe symptoms needs to get to hospital as quickly as possible!

Severe CO poisoning needs immediate medical treatment

CO poisoning can only be tested shortly after exposure as its traces begin to disappear as soon as you start breathing clear air

If CO poisoning is confirmed - get a properly qualified person to find and fix the appliance or engine before it is used again
