Model 2010 CO Low Level Monitor by CO Experts
Do not let someone else dictate that only Inferior protection must be installed in your home;thereby possibly condemning you and your family to lifelong suffering as a result of chronic low level poisoning. It is your health, your life, your home and only you should decide. Do not permit yourself or your family to become one of the 50,000 citizens having to be taken to the ER at your local hospital because your CO alarm failed to warned you in time, ..... “ In real time”.
The large majority of our Nations CO deaths and serious illnesses from CO are a result of exposure in the home. Does that not make you wonder why the legal requirements to control CO outside, or in the workplace are so much better, more strict than any that exist for your home?
Consider carefully the following: ….. EPA, “Outdoor” C O level present is not to exceed 9 ppm. Health Canada: Warning @ 11 ppm, ACGIAH & Health Canada _Exit & ICC / IMD Vent @ 25 ppm, NIOSH, 35 ppm, OSHA, 50 ppm TWA (Time waited average) 8 hours. Also, most Fire Departments require firefighters to put on their breathing apparatus if the encounter 35 ppm, [NIOSH], Home Inspectors & Energy Auditors are told to EXIT if they encounter 35 ppm, [NIOSH], and many Gas Utilities will “Shut-Off” the gas if they find 10 ppm or more CO present in the home.
WARNING: This product is intended for use in ordinary indoor locations for family living units. It is not designed to measure compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) commercial or industrial standards."
The "Required Warning" on every UL-2034 or CSA-6.19 Listed CO alarm makes it very clear that their CO alarms do not provide "Health" protection because they forbid audible warnings at 30 ppm for 30 days; thereby providing no/zero protection from chronic low level CO poisoning.
New medical studies detailed in the recently released Scientific Medical Studies at the UCLA Medical Center [ http://www.coexperts.com/miracle.htm ] concerning the stating effects of chronic low level CO poisoning, I believe that it is obvious that CO detection products such as the NEW CO – Experts Model 2010 are long overdue. I ask you to join my battle to protect everyone in the home ….. not just the young, healthy adults….. as is the proposed protected group specified by the manufacturers of UL / CSA Listed CO alarms. UL, CSA and their listed manufacturers are fully aware of their products weaknesses which require them to put the following “Disclaimers” on their CO alarms.
PRO-TECH and their parent company S-Tech, as well as the Universal Model CD-9000 also say: “Individuals with medical problems may consider using warning devices which provide audible and visual signals for carbon monoxide concentrations under 30 ppm”.
The DICON / American Sensors Model 850E states the above and adds the words, "Using more sensitive detection devices which provides audible and visual signals for concentrations under 30 ppm."
The "Wording" on the Nighthawk Model #KN-COP-DP (P/N 900-0056) packaging is as follows: "Pregnant women, infants, children, senior citizens, persons with heart or respiratory problems and smokers may experience symptoms at lower levels of exposure than noted. Individuals with medical problems may consider using warning devices which provide audible and visual signals for carbon monoxide concentrations under 30 ppm."
Clearly marked on every UL / CSA CO alarm is the fact that these products are made to protect: “Young, Healthy Adults”. ….. Also remember that , UL / CSA Listed CO alarms must not sound an audible alarm at 30 PPM or less for at least 30 DAYS. To review the “Rest of the Story”, see: http://www.coexperts.com/brochure%20link.htm
After considering all of the above quotes, is a UL-2034 or a CSA-6.19 Listed CO Alarm really the carbon monoxide poisoning protection you want for yourself and your family?
If you ever have anyone in your home that falls into any of the above listed persons, named in their disclaimers, a Low-Level CO "Health" Monitor should be at the very top of your shopping list.
Now, you should understand why I did not design my Monitor to meet only the UL-2034 / CSA-6.19 CO alarm requirements.
I sincerely believe that “Real Time”, is the only real protection.
I repeat, do not let someone else dictate that only inferior protection must be installed in your home; thereby possibly condemning you and your family to lifelong suffering as a result of chronic low level poisoning. It is your health, your life, your home and only you should decide. Do not permit yourself or your family to become one of the 50,000 citizens having to be taken to the ER at your local hospital because your CO alarm failed to warn you in time, ..... “ In Real Time”.
I want to warn you that some of the "Writings" that appear in a few of my "Links" are posted by companies, ( just like mine), that have a vested financial interest in selling you a "particular brand name product",..... keep that in mind.
The CO-Experts Model 2010 Low Level Carbon Monoxide "Health" Monitor is designed to sell to the Consumer Market at $249.00 (US) per unit, on a cash and carry basis (Inspections, installation, service and/or shipping and handling not included)
The expected "Lifetime" of the monitor is five to seven, (5-7) years. The best possible protection from chronic low level Carbon Monoxide Poisoning can be yours for less than $1.00 a week.
50,000+ Emergency visits a year due to CO poisoning.

PURPOSE: While carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is common in the USA, its incidence is uncertain. Fatal poisonings are counted with relative accuracy from death certificate data, but estimates of the more common nonfatal poisonings are either old or limited. This study was performed to estimate the number of emergency department (ED) visits annually in the USA for carbon monoxide poisoning. BASIC PROCEDURES: ED visit rates in five states (Idaho, Maine, Montana, Utah, and Washington) from three prior studies, each using different methodology, were used to extrapolate independent estimates of national ED visits. MAIN FINDINGS: After correcting for regional differences in CO poisoning incidence, estimates of national ED visits per year ranging from 32,413 to 56,037 were obtained. Excluding the estimate derived from the Maine rate because it did not include intentional and fire-related poisonings, the national average is 50,558 +/- 4,843 visits per year.
There are approximately 50,000 ED Visits for C O Poisoning in the USA annually,
3-5 Times the numbers previously estimated.
As this disease can result in significant long-term morbidity even when treated, enhanced prevention efforts are warranted.
