Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0007018

NCI Thesaurus Code: C76742  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Hazardous or Poisonous Substance

Semantic Type: Inorganic Chemical

NCIt Definition: An odorless, tasteless, poisonous gas, CO, that results from the incomplete combustion of carbon. Inhalation causes central nervous system damage and asphyxiation.

CSP Definition: colorless, odorless, poisonous gas produced by incomplete fossil fuel combustion.

MSH Definition: Carbon monoxide (CO). A poisonous colorless, odorless, tasteless gas. It combines with hemoglobin to form carboxyhemoglobin, which has no oxygen carrying capacity. The resultant oxygen deprivation causes headache, dizziness, decreased pulse and respiratory rates, unconsciousness, and death. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)

NCI-GLOSS Definition: A poisonous gas that has no color or odor. It is given off by burning fuel (as in exhaust from cars or household heaters) and tobacco products. Carbon monoxide prevents red blood cells from carrying enough oxygen for cells and tissues to live.
