2. Advanced Symptoms

Over time, carbon monoxide poisoning can dramatically worsen, and the symptoms become more serious. However, the effects remain vague and hard to link to carbon monoxide. Progressive symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include chest pain, shortness of breath, vomiting, confusion, blurry vision, and loss of consciousness. No definite timeline determines how long it takes for poisoning to progress. Instead, carbon monoxide poisoning is dependant on the concentration of carbon monoxide and the time a person spends exposed to it.
