Gas Poisoning is a type of illness in DayZ.

Cause[ | ]

Entering a contaminated zone without wearing a gas mask or with a depleted filter. Bleeding inside a contaminated zone (regardless of protection) will also cause Gas Poisoning. Note that not wearing any part of the nbc suit will cause that section of the body to bleed. The head is limited to one be bleed at a time, while the hands and feet are capped at two. Gas Poisoning is gained relative to the number of cuts.

Effects[ | ]

While being poisoned by Gas Poisoning, survivors are subject to the following effects over 3 stages:

Stage Exposure Time Effect
Stage 1 On Zone Entry Any amount of exposure will result in any
blood collected from you will become tainted.
Stage 2 25 seconds Coughing every 20 - 40 seconds, Causing 50 Blood damage
Vomiting every 3 - 5 minutes, Causing 250 Blood Damage
Stage 3 1 minute, 20 seconds Knocked Unconscious
3 Health damage per second until dead

Treatment[ | ]

When a survivor has Gas Poisoning, using a PO-X Antidote will treat them based on what stage of contamination the survivor has. In stages 1 or 2 the PO-X Antidote will instantly cure the user of Gas Poisoning. If the survivor is within stage 3 they will be woken from their Unconsciousness and their contamination stage will be set back to stage 2.

A blood transfusion with a non tainted IV Blood Bag will cure Gas Poisoning. Since one transfusion will lower the disease severity only by a portion, 1-4 transfusions may be needed to cure the poisoning entirely.

Tainted Blood Bag[ | ]

A Tainted IV Blood Bag is made when you collect blood from someone who is suffering from any stage of the gas poisoning. The blood collected from a person wearing full protective gear in the gas will be clean. Tainted blood will produce no ill effects and give you blood like a normal IV Blood Bag, but it will not cure Gas Poisoning unlike its non-tainted counterpart.
