Winter reminder for patients and caregivers: Carbon monoxide poisoning from vehicle exhaust claims approximately 400 lives across the United States each year. Because there is no distinct odor, color or other indicative factors, victims of the poisoning are often unaware. Symptoms to watch for include headache, nausea, disorientation, and dizziness. Please encourage patients when they register to remind those waiting in the vehicle to be safe during the frigid months where we see a lot of snow – especially during COVID-19 when visitors are limited within the office.
