Carbon Monoxide Poisoning is Common in Winter Months

Furnaces, fireplaces and other heating elements can produce carbon monoxide if not properly ventilated. If you find yourself using something other than your furnace to heat the area you’re in, make sure there is at least a crack in the door or windows of the room or car you’re in.

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include: dizziness, headache, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, difficulty breathing and chest pain.

Unfortunately, the cherry red skin color that we’re all taught to look for is often a symptom that occurs so late that the carbon monoxide exposure is already dire.

Take some pro-active steps to ensure your home is safe. Install carbon monoxide detectors along with your smoke detectors.

If you’re in a cabin or other remote location, a stand-alone carbon monixide detector should be among your gear.

And if you find yourself stuck in a car and need to keep the engine running for heat, leave a window cracked, and get out every so often to make sure the tail pipe has not become covered in snow.

Slip and Fall Prevention Should Be Top-of-Mind in Winter

Snow, freezing rain and ice make surfaces difficult to navigate and increase the risk of falls along with associated injuries such as fractures, sprains, strains and head injuries.

If you’re on a slippery surface, take short steps and walk slowly.

Try to establish three points of contact such as a rail or other stable structure as you walk.

Avoid carrying anything in your hands while on a slippery surface as you need your hands free for balance.

If you do take a fall, a good neuromuscular massage will help relieve your aches and pains.
