Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Carbon Monoxide is a odorless, colorless, tasteless gas that reduces your body's ability to carry oxygen in your blood.  High concentrations can cause death.  Carbon Monoxide is a by-product of combustion (burning) and can be produced by fuel burning appliances (like camp stoves, wood/charcoal BBQ's, lantern's).

Below is an alert from the CPSC from 2010 that provides a good summary of the dangers and prevention of Carbon Monoxide Poisioning while camping.

The Government of Canada webpage gives more detailed information (for both a home and while camping):

Carbon Monoxide does kill campers in Canada.  The article (link below) from the summer of 2019 is about a 10 year old BC girl ended up in hospital from suspected Carbon Monoxide poisoning while camping.  Sadly her mother died in the same incident.
