Abstract:

Fire a very good servant, but a very bad master can create a lot of destruction. Fires and burns are the fifth most common cause of unintentional injury and third leading cause of fatal home injury. Most fire deaths are not caused by burns, but by smoke inhalation. Carbon monoxide, the silent killer, formed during burning in inadequate ventilation has a particular trait that causes it to be poisonous. CO is better at binding to haemoglobin than oxygen is about 200 times better. This forms a compound called carboxyhaemoglobin which, binds to oxygen binding sites causing blood to lose all of its ability to transport oxygen. As a result people suffocate. Levels of 150-200 ppm (parts per million) results in unconsciousness and sometimes death. This paper presents a Nano robot that eliminates carbon monoxide from carboxyhaemoglobin by the release of Micro Peroxidase (MP). MP dissociates CO from carboxyhaemoglobin thus enabling the supply of oxygen to the tissues that are in need of it.


Keywords: Carbon monoxide (CO), Carboxyhaemoglobin, Micro Peroxidase (MP), Nano robots.
