Version type

Carbon monoxide gets into the air in all types of combustion. In the cities, mainly in the composition of the exhaust gases from the internal combustion engine or malfunction of boilers, heat generators and gas stoves. Carbon monoxide actively binds with hemoglobin, forming carboxyhemoglobin and blocks the transfer of oxygen to tissue cells, leading to hypoxia of hemic type. Carbon monoxide is also involved in oxidation reactions, disturbing the biochemical balance in tissues. This leads to a sharp pathological condition such as carbon monoxide poisoning.

Gassing leads to sensations of nausea, weakness, the confusion, may appear hallucinations, motor paralysis with preserved consciousness and eventually death.

It is the appearance of hallucinations in cases of poisoning with carbon monoxide in the castles, garages, and residential buildings are often associated with seeing ghosts.
