Realize this isn't exactly a "cleaning" subject, but thought this would be a good place to start.
The special needs kid in summer program went on a field trip to Home Depot today. We went on the school bus... they have AC now, not like back in stone-age. We were on the bus for a 30-40 minutes each way.
By the time we got back to school, I was starting to feel the beginnings of a KIL LER headache. By the time I got home (about 1:00), it was full-blown POUNDING and no match for Tylenol.
May have gone a bit paranoid BUT... thought carbon monoxide!?! Won't be in school till Monday, but if ANY of co-workers had a similar experience, gonna make sure somebody in authority hears about it.
Could be but I thought you just got sleepy.
If the bus has a leaky exhaust system that allowed fumes to enter the passenger cabin, and if the AC system is a closed one that doesn't allow outside/inside air exchange, there's some possibility of CO poisoning. If both those conditions weren't present, and if no one else showed signs of illness, it's unlikely.
When my mom got carbon monoxide poisoning she had a pounding head ache and she was sleepy. DB2 was with her and just got sleepy.
She had the muffler on that car replaced the next day.
I imagine it was the discomfort of the trip, since busses usually have to be inspected quite closely.
The driver is in it all day every day...and not getting sick.. but you could mention it, they can just put a CO detector in it and run it for a half hour.
Life is GOOD!!
