Abstract:

Carbon monoxide CO, a colorless nonirritating gas, is the most abundant and widely distributed air pollutant found in the lower atmosphere 15 . Emission of CO generally exceeds that of all other gaseous pollutants combined, particularly in urban atmospheres. This gas constitutes an important, world wide environmental hazard. More persons in the United States succumb each year to acute CO poisoning 1000 than to any other single toxic agent except alcohol 25
