Carbon Monoxide Poisoning : Hospitalizations and Deaths in Canada Cohen, Irwin; Garis, Len; Rajabali, Fahra; Pike, Ian


The purpose of this research note is to draw attention to the number of carbon monoxide poisonings and deaths in Canada, which is, to some degree, preventable through the implementation of legislation requiring all new constructions to have installed and functioning CO alarms as the current built environment does not have this requirement. In effect, this research note is a call for retrospective regulation to require the built environment to install CO alarms in all existing residences.
