LP Gas inhalation

Hi,
Our gas heater failed Sunday evening. When I found her she was barely alive. Recon she was exposed around 20 to 30 min. Ambulance were called and she were treated and kept for observation.

What side effects can be expected from this incident?

Hallo Gerhard
Gas is an asphyxiating danger, so the only side effects will be the loss of oxygen to the brain for the period - could be similar to a stroke in severe cases or they could recover completely.
