Both of the above

Be on alert for carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Carbon monoxide poisoning occurs when poisonous gases are inhaled and are picked up quickly by the red blood cells at a higher rate than oxygen, blocking oxygen from getting into the body. The result can damage body tissues and cause death. Symptoms include: headache, dizziness, confusion, flu-like effects, chest pain, nausea and loss of consciousness. Because the gas is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, it can be difficult to detect.
