Physiological Effect of CO2 Inhalation

Because CO2 is colorless and odorless, symptoms of inhalation can occur for seemingly no reason. The effects of CO2 inhalation may at first be attributed to something else and the victim may have no idea of the seriousness of the issue. When a person begins to inhale CO2 instead of oxygen, rapid breathing and headaches can begin to occur. The body will try to breathe faster so that it can take in more oxygen when it realizes it is being deprived of oxygen.

That will cause the person to inhale even more CO2, which can cause headaches due to low oxygen levels. If the brain is deprived of oxygen for long enough, the body will pass out to cease all other functions besides focusing on breathing. At this point, the person is unable to move away from the CO2 source and someone else needs to remove them to prevent death. If the person is completely starved of oxygen, they will die of asphyxiation.

Are Your Workplaces Safe?

These are very real dangers that employees of restaurants and bars can potentially be exposed to while at work. But, there are ways to ensure your workplace is a safe place to be. One of the main ways to do this is by installing CO2 monitors. CO2 monitors work like smoke detectors. We keep smoke detectors and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in our homes because these gases are dangerous to us, and we want to be warned of their presence before it is too late. Similarly, restaurants and bars should have CO2 detectors/monitors because that is the gas most likely to cause problems. Without any sort of CO2 monitor or detector in an establishment where carbonated beverage machines are used, the employees could be at risk.
