Most all Fire
Fighter units now carry RAD-57 PCO/Om testers.
Or if the Rad-57 or equivelent tester is not

evaluation as soon as possible. Immediately treat (with oxygen) and/or
transport (for hyperbaric O2) when indicated or if reasonably suspected!

Formaldehyde is always created (along with Carbon Monoxide, etc) and
absorbed from all flame type cooking, baking and heater fumes venting
inside. Hood fans
which vent to the outside
should be operating when any interior gas fired cook top or oven is
being used. Infants, toddlers, expectant mothers, should never be
allowed to remain in a kitchen or any inside area where a gas cook top,
oven, or unvented (flame type) heater is in operation! Fetuses

This National Poisoning problem

in the specific
living situations or disaster events I have indicated above! The
problem lays in the
Washington DC's created First

-- So you or any
potential poisoning victim or an advocate for a poisoning victim must
assertively demand immediate Carbon Monoxide
testing of their blood; specifically the
"Carboxyhemoglobin", (SpCO) blood saturation levels evaluation for
Carbon Monoxide, which
is easily, painlessly, and in reality, cheaply done using the "child
and adult friendly", non-invasive "Rad-57"s finger-clip
All Fire fighting teams are now supposed to
this rather inexpensive (under a thousand dollars) "Rad-57 CO-Oximeter" or have
saturation testing method equipment with them -- to monitor
themselves when fighting any fire, any time!)
-- The alternative method is by doing a common blood draw, then
lab analysis as
timely as possible, including conserving enough blood in the draw

Saturation percentages of CO blood levels

■ Less than 3% is OK or
"normal" levels, no treatment needed beyond breathing fresh air.
■ Over 3% to 15% indicates exposure
and should be treated with 100%
oxygen by mask (or nasal tubes).
Over 15% they should be hospitalized and given hyperbaric

Sandy Victims & Survivors,
& First Responder Professionals, Medical Providers:
victims and survivors suffered a common natural disaster poisoning
is now a prevalent critical poisoning risk
for you in the aftermath and devastation of Superstorm
As storm devastation
victims and survivors attempt to warm themselves, boil water (for safer
drinking and hygiene) or cook, in crude and inappropriate combustion
situations, they can easily cause subtle to serious toxins asphyxiation
injuries to themselves, or to other individuals in the same breathing
The critical toxin of
course, is Carbon Monoxide (CO), but it is always accompanied by Formaldehyde (H2CO—Carbon Monoxide’s
combustion-created “wet” cousin),
NOx and the other toxic VOCs* created in natural combustion.
This same combustion poisoning
experience needlessly affects millions of others in the U.S. because of
misplaced Bureaucratic, Regulatory, and Medical trust, coupled with our
and our (deliberately) deficient education! But with some simple
awareness and common sense, most all of these combustion created
and deaths are preventable!
once a poisoning has occurred, to
radically reduce repeated injury or consequent death, First Responders,
Fighters, Paramedics, and Medical Providers need to immediately perform
broadly available non invasive light beam analysis,
that is, “serum” saturation test for Carbon
Monoxide -- instead
of only doing the “traditionalized” (common) practice of
environmental air quality (breathing air safety) testing with an
equivalent (breathing air) atmospheric type tester to implicate or
human poisoning or not.
air) testing alone is not reliable enough to determine if someone has
poisoned or not. It is subject to the inconsistencies of the
itself, fickle air currents and the sporadic nature of any crudely
source (the fire or smoldering embers) itself. Without the reliable blood
(Carboxyhemoglobin) test, Carbon Monoxide (with it associated
toxins) can easily be misdiagnosed, overlooked, or ignored. A wrong “diagnoses” also easily

So without quick, affirmative blood saturation levels testing, the

without knowledge or correction, to experience further poisoning
injury, even death!
As the primary
combustion toxin of concern, Carbon Monoxide, thankfully also has the
blood-“color”-signature, so serves as the
“flag” (visible marker) certifying
the presence of the other, not so easy to identify, toxins of
and combustion VOCs* (*volatile organic compounds), equally deadly and
To First Responders
and Medical Providers: There
are serious, sometimes deadly, deficiencies in
guidelines and medical diagnostic protocols (since the mid-70s);
in the “response to caller” instructions, as well as, once
on site, your spatial
versus victim testing and evaluation, on-site treatment and/or
follow-up treatment and reporting all is “Washington
DC” flawed. Instead
the best advice to give before you arrive: “Get the victim out,
do not change
anything else.” Have victim’s associates leave everything
else exactly as it was
(for your tests).
Fighter units now carry portable RAD-57 PCO/Om light
testers, which have built-in capacity to
simply perform an inexpensive, non-invasive,
painless finger tip
“Pulse Oximeter/Carboximeter” evaluation. However,
protocols often have a
“Doctors’ Order Requirement” impediment to
performing this test
immediately—despite the fact that this test does not even prick
the skin. It
uses a harmless beam of light! If this
of tester is not available, your option is doing an immediate blood
for a lab’s CO evaluation, while immediately treating with oxygen
transport (for hyperbaric O2) when indicated or even just suspected.
So, to Hurricane
Sandy Victims and their Associates: To have a sure diagnoses and proper
treatment in possible
combustion fumes poisoning events you must
demand immediate Carbon Monoxide testing
of your own or victims
blood for its “Carboxyhemoglobin” (blood
saturation) levels evaluation of
Carbon Monoxide, and if positive, demand immediate oxygen (by mask), or
serious, hyperbaric treatment.
