Abstract
Carbon monoxide poisoning is possible in open, outdoor environments when large numbers of motorboats gather, according to CDC. A recent CDC study confirmed excessive CO exposures among both vacationers and employees present during crowded motorboat gatherings. The report notes that substantial CO exposures were identified in the late afternoon during crowded boating conditions. Both employees and vacationers had elevations in expired breath CO concentrations. Public health officials in communities with lakes and rivers where boats congregate in large numbers should monitor CO exposures during high-traffic periods and take steps to prevent poisoning.
