2/29/12 – Dr. Hildy – Death By Carbon Monoxide – OneCellOneLightRadio

DEATH BY CARBON MONOXIDE

Dr. Hildegarde Staninger™, RIET-1,  welcomes her Guest,  Attorney Julia Swanson, a partner at Swanson & McKibbin in Beverly Hills, California. The focus of the firm’s practice is carbon monoxide poisoning and its consequent brain injury. The firm also handles other toxic exposure. She has been in practice for 20 years in Southern California, after graduating from New York Law School.

Hour 1 – Death by Carbon Monoxide, Your Legal RightsHour 2 – The Systemic Toxicological Effects of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning — How to Monitor Exposure

Every day we’re faced with easily identifiable dangers to our well-being. So many that it seems like even leaving the house is a rewardable act of bravery. But what if there’s something in your own home that poses a threat to your immediate safety? What if it poses a threat to your physical – and mental – health? And what if it isn’t the Internet? Despite sounding like a sensationalized teaser from the local news, this threat is very real – and there is no way for you to detect it.

This week on One Cell, One Light Radio, Dr. Staninger welcomes plaintiff injury attorney Julia Swanson to discuss this undetectable danger – carbon monoxide. While most people know about the danger posed by CO, as it’s use as an aid in suicide attempts is well-publicized, this is only one type of poisoning.

High-level, or acute, poisoning happens quickly and can lead to death or loss of consciousness. Though dangerous, it is often treatable as long as you don’t die, as the effects of the excess of CO can be counteracted with a high amount of oxygen inhalation, which helps offset the effects and regenerate the cells damaged. However, the more pressing danger is that of low-level, or chronic, poisoning, which is much more common. And much more deadly.

The danger of low-level poisoning stems mostly from the fact that CO is not detectable without special equipment. It’s a colorless, odorless gas that at low levels do not cause symptoms that are distinct enough to cause alarm. Dizziness, nausea and headaches are most common, and most sufferers will feel like they have the flu. However, long-term exposure will affect the hippocampus – the part of the brain that deals with memory. It is because of this that often the effects of low-level carbon monoxide exposure will be dismissed as an effect of aging. Loss of focus and concentration are often symptoms, as are common headaches and a numbness in one’s hands.

The most common cause of this exposure is from items you probably already have in your home. Gas stoves and wall heaters will emit low levels of CO after long periods of use if they have not been serviced properly. This is especially a problem in older apartment buildings, as landlords are often unaware of the problem and do not have the appliances regularly checked for their tenants. The state of California recently passed legislation making it mandatory that all new homes are built with CO detectors, but these do not often catch emissions at the levels where they can cause long-term exposure. It is the mission of Ms. Swanson to bring public awareness to the dangers of low-level exposure and to make sure that others do not fall victim to the same fate of her clients, while also trying new and alternative means of treatment for them.

Join Dr. Staninger and her guest Julia Swanson this week as they discuss the potential harm of long-term carbon monoxide exposure on One Cell, One Light Radio!
