||Poisoning from carbon dioxide inhalation
||Intoxication par inhalation de dioxyde de carbone [in French]|
||3rd Quarter 1999, No.79, p.179-194. 52 ref.
||A case of collective carbon dioxide (CO2) poisoning which occurred in a fast-food restaurant in the Seine-Saint-Denis department of France (near Paris) provides an opportunity to restate the importance of remaining vigilant with respect to this hazard. Indeed, ignorance of this hazard may prove to be fatal to exposed persons, while the conditions under which this colourless and odourless gas is produced or used in occupational settings have been known for a long time. Contents include: toxicity of CO2; sources of exposure; descriptions of CO2 poisonings; preventing the CO2 exposure risk.
