Four Things to Know about Carbon Monoxide
88 Max talks in detail about Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and CO Monitors.
1. Know the symptoms, which include headache, dizziness, upset stomach, vomiting, weakness, confusion, and chest pain. Skin is pink or pale and the lips bright red.
2. Most CO in planes is from a faulty heating system. So shut off the cabin heat, open windows, and land as soon as possible.
3. 43 percent of poisoned patients still have cognitive problems a year after their encounter.
4. Get an electronic CO Detector. This is a perfect Christmas gift for any pilot, so treat yourself to this potentially lifesaving device. We have two recommendations including:
Pocket CO KWJ Carbon Monoxide Detector $163
Sentry ADS-B Receiver with Carbon Monoxide Detector $499
A listener asked how he can get free ADS-B weather in flight without having to pay for an app. The FltPlan Go app for iOS, Android, and Windows is free. It's compatible with the Garmin GDL 50 Portable ADS-B Receiver. Get these two items, and you should have free ADS-B weather and traffic for the foreseeable future.
