Reasons to Continuously Monitor Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Levels - Otis Instruments

Reasons to Continuously Monitor Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Levels

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is an invisible gas that occurs naturally in the environment through the human respiratory system; humans breathe in oxygen and exhale CO2. Small levels of this gas are harmless, however larger amounts create a toxic atmosphere for nearby personnel. In indoor spaces with limited ventilation, the dropping of oxygen levels can cause…
