Can co2 cause brain damage?

Can you get brain damage from high levels of co2?

The brain and lungs continually use an O2-CO2 feedback mechanism. High CO2 in the body triggers us to breathe. High CO2 in the air, however, eventually cause us to stop breathing after period of deceased oxygen. This causes brain damage and can cause organ damage.


Why respiratory rate not increase in carbon monoxide poisoning?

CO2 is what causes the drive to breathe in normal human. In carbon monoxide poisoning, there are two reasons why the ventilatory pattern may remain unchanged: there is an initial decrease in CO2 as the body reserves become mobilized telling the chemoreceptors and the apneustic center in the brain that no more ventilation is required. The second reason is the CO poisoning cause a cerbrospinal acidosis which can further hinder signals from the apneustic center to the respiratory system.


Can propane cause carbon monoxide poisioning?

Incomplete combustion of any hydrocarbon can cause formation of carbon monoxide (instead of CO2) and hence can cause carbon monoxide poisoning.


Where is a humans CO2 sensor?

In your brain. Many people don't know that the drowsy feeling and cherry-red lips and flushed cheeks are signs of CO2 poisoning. Be safe and buy a CO2 alarm.Your dog may save you from a fire, but pets won't help with a CO2 leak.


Would the Gog envy's regulator break using CO2?

Its regulator is not recomened for use with co2. On cold days it may gum up and jam, but it will not cause permenant damage to your gun.


How does the brain control breathing?

there's a part of this brain called the respiratory system and if i am not mistaken it is located in a part of the brain called pons and the medulla oblongata. the brain controls the rate of breathing by monitoring the level of carbon dioxide in the blood. CO2 by the way is the main stimulus for breathing. without it, you just stop breathing at all (so CO2 is not at all that bad). anyway, when CO2 levels in the blood is high a condition known as respiratory acidosis develops. as a compensatory mechanism the brain causes us to hyperventilate to get rid of that extra CO2. when the CO2 level is low on the other hand, respiratory alkalosis develops. as a result the brain will cause us to hypoventilate which allows for the accumulation of CO2 in the blood. CO2 is maintained at a normal range which is 35 - 45 mmHg.

It is believed that excessive CO2 emissions will cause?

CO2 is carbon dioxide, and excessive CO2 is believed to cause Global Warming.


Can high Co2 levels cause a stroke?

yes and strock can cause high co2


What are co2 detectors used for?

CO2 detectors are used for detecting levels of carbon monoxide in the air. Many people use CO2 detectors in their homes to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.


Is carbon dioxide bad for the human body?

It is not actually a poison. The body has no use for it. It displaces Oxygen, which is required. So you suffocate. More Co2, prevents waste CO2 from leaving the body. The excess can cause brain swelling.
