What Do I Do if I Am Experiencing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Symptoms?
If you are suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning symptoms, act quick and follow these steps:

- Shut off all gas appliances (stove tops, HVAC system, water heaters, dryer, etc.)

Be sure to explain your symptoms clearly to the medical staff and ask to have a blood and breath test done.
