CO has been shown to bind to myoglobin, which supplies oxygen to muscles during strenuous exercise, when muscle demand for oxygen is greater than the supply of oxygen available from the blood. 7%. , this occurs irrespective of ambient exposure to CO). Exposure to high ambient CO concentrations can result in concentrations of COHb at 2% or higher if the exposure lasts long enough (hours). The exposure time is critical as there is an 8-12 hour period necessary for equilibrium between ambient CO and blood COHb concentration.

CO also may affect O2 transport to muscle (EPA 2000a). CO has been shown to bind to myoglobin, which supplies oxygen to muscles during strenuous exercise, when muscle demand for oxygen is greater than the supply of oxygen available from the blood. 7%. , this occurs irrespective of ambient exposure to CO). Exposure to high ambient CO concentrations can result in concentrations of COHb at 2% or higher if the exposure lasts long enough (hours). The exposure time is critical as there is an 8-12 hour period necessary for equilibrium between ambient CO and blood COHb concentration.

The study concluded that, although CO concentrations at the microscale sites are often higher than concentrations found at larger-scale monitoring sites (sites located in extended urban areas and more rural areas), CO concentrations at microscale sites are declining at the same rate as concentrations recorded at monitors representing larger regions. Ambient CO Pollution in the United States 31 FIGURE 1-2 Number of days with exceedances of the 8-hour NAAQS for CO per month and per year in Fairbanks, Alaska.
