Monitor Co2 for optimum safety.
High and unmonitored Co2 concentrations can cause headaches, nausea, dizziness, and a stinging sensation.
Higher amounts can cause breathing difficulties (shortness of breath). It can also cause perspiration, tiredness, vomiting, or increased heart rate. At extremely high Co2 levels, it may lead to unconsciousness.
Though the ambient air contains diluted Co2, this is not evident within a building or in a confined space, such as a restaurant, bedroom, or workplace.
This is even worse in populated areas with poor ventilation systems such as schools, banks, and auditoriums.
Therefore, regular monitoring of carbon dioxide levels is essential to ensure proper and timely management of Co2 levels.
Co2 Levels in the outside air are approximately 400ppm (parts per million).
Humans emit between 35,000 and 50,000 ppm of Co2 into the environment on average.
If this volume of Co2 remains in a closed space, it can be detrimental to health.
Therefore, Co2 level monitors must be used along with the existing ventilation system.
