    Sounds like some might have passed-out rather than died in their sleep.

    I didn't see anything in any article about 1200 ppm in the home. Jerry, where did you get that number?

    Passed out (became unconscious from th CO) and died - vs - dying in their sleep? The difference is only whether they "went to sleep" to take a nap or sleep ... or... "went to sleep" because they were overcome by CO and passed out?

    I got that from the video (I watched two videos, the second video being mostly a rehash of the first), maybe it was in the second video if it's not in the linked video.

    I can find and link the second video if wanted.

    It also said you die in one hour in 1000 ppm CO, but I didn't include that part because when I went to verify that 1000 ppm CO = death in 1 hr ... I couldn't verify it - unconscious, yes, and the natural progression of being unconscious in 1000 ppm CO for more than 1 hr would seem to be death.

    One of the articles mentioned that the members of the family were found in bathrooms as well as bedrooms. Typically, one does not intentionally go to sleep in the bathroom; however, they are likely to crawl into bed to go to sleep and not wake up.

    I don't know why but this reminded me of the HBO miniseries "Chernobyl" that is currently on TV

    Why these things don?t have a wired interlock with a properly function detector attached is beyond me.
