toxic gases; exposure; oxygen atmosphere; combustion products; toxicology; animals

Abstract:

The toxicity of single and multiple fire gases is studied to determine whether the toxic effects of the combustion products from materials can be explained by the toxicological interactions (as indicated by lethality) of the primary fire gases or if minor, more obscure gases need to be considered.
