Can I suffer permanent damage from carbon monoxide poisoning?
Yes, it is possible. Injuries will vary. Some will make a complete recovery, while others may have serious permanent injuries such as anoxia and hypoxia. Anoxia and Hypoxia are forms of traumatic brain injuries that decrease the oxygen supply in the brain. The two are similar in that they both indicate a low amount of oxygen going to the brain; however anoxia is the most extreme form of hypoxia.
