Experiments indicate that CO concentrations which are not hazardous to life do not enhance the toxicity of four compounds HCN, NO2, HF, HCl as tested. In addition, the times to death for animals from both the singly exposed and the CO joint action exposures are comparable. This precludes the possibility that, although not resulting in greater mortalities at a given concentration, the addition of CO increases the hazard by decreasing the time to death.
