Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless and toxic gas produced as a by-product of combustion. In other words, its hard to detect... unless you let the CO Guardian help. Ash explains that, "Carbon monoxide inhibits the blood's ability to carry oxygen to body tissues including vital organs such as the heart and brain. When CO is inhaled, it combines with the oxygen carrying hemoglobin of the blood to form carboxyhemoglobin (COHb). Once combined with the hemoglobin, that hemoglobin is no longer available for transporting oxygen. Ash explains that his mission is to protect the inside of the cabin and with that in mind, its easy to see why his next project was a device that high-flying pilots can use to check their oxygen sats (saturation) to make sure that they;'re on the ball as they think they are... and they need to be.
