Transcontinental wildfire emissions monitored from space
Using data from the SCIAMACHY instrument aboard ESA's environmental satellite Envisat, scientists have determined that the carbon monoxide hovering over Australia during the wildfire season largely originated from South American wildfires some 13 000 kilometres away. View News Article (2007-05-09)

Harvard and U. Pittsburgh researchers explain carbon monoxide's anti-inflammatory effects
In a study appearing in the April 2007 issue of The FASEB Journal, scientists from Harvard University and the University of Pittsburgh have shown for the first time that the anti-inflammatory effects of carbon monoxide originate within cells' own molecular engines, mitochondria. View News Article (2007-03-30)

Doctors at Children's National Medical Center have found that carbon monoxide levels in the blood of young children increase during routine general anesthesia. View News Article (2010-04-30)

Carbon monoxide linked to heart problems in elderly
Exposure to carbon monoxide, even at levels well below national limits, is associated with an increased risk of hospitalization for the elderly with heart problems, according to a study published today in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association. View News Article (2009-09-01)

Carbon monoxide may help prevent debilitating pregnancy condition
New findings by Queen's University researchers suggest that administering low doses of carbon monoxide to pregnant women may help prevent the potentially damaging effects to mother and baby of pre-eclampsia. View News Article (2006-09-06)

Tiny levels of carbon monoxide damage fetal brain
A UCLA study has discovered that chronic exposure during pregnancy to miniscule levels of carbon monoxide damages the cells of the fetal brain, resulting in permanent impairment. View News Article (2009-06-25)

When preventing pre-eclampsia, a little carbon monoxide goes a long way

Deadly gas can protect the heart
Joint release from Northwick Park Institute for Medical Research and the University of Sheffield Scientists have developed a new technology based on carbon monoxide delivery that may protect the heart following a heart attack and prevent rejection of transplanted organs. Researchers from Northwick Park Institute of Medical Research (NPIMR) and the University of Sheffield have developed carbon... View News Article (2003-08-18)

Snowstorms and power outages present elevated risk for carbon monoxide poisoning
While preventable, carbon monoxide poisoning is a serious and sometimes fatal condition. Large weather events, such as snowstorms and heavy storms that cause power outages, can lead to an increase in the number of reported carbon monoxide exposures. View News Article (2014-04-08)
