It has been reported in This is Plymouth that Charity, Diving Diseases Research Centre has also reported an increase in the amount of people using its hyperbaric chamber to provide treatment for carbon monoxide poisoning. The organisation claims more people have used its chamber in the past year than in previous years, stating that “timing is critical” and that the faster people are brought to them, the better their chances of survival.
With this in mind, the team at We Fix Now have shown their support for the awareness campaign. The firm provides emergency plumbing in Stoke Newington but also offers a number of Gas Safe Registered engineers around the clock. A representative shares their thoughts.
“It’s great to see the emergency services prompting more people to invest in carbon monoxide detectors. The alarms are not expensive and can be bought from your local supermarket or DIY store.
“Because the symptoms are similar to those of the flu, many people make the mistake of turning up their faulty heating appliance and closing windows. Anyone worried they may be displaying symptoms should open doors and windows and evacuate the house.”
The Department of Health estimates that carbon monoxide is responsible for around 50 deaths each year.
