I have answered that question and it is as you understand it, it is due to the COHb in the blood causing the blood to become cherry red.
The issue is, when does that become commonly and obviously visible?
What can't you understand about the statement of, "...it is nearly always fatal? People have survived such levels of COHb but survival is rare. IOW, if your level of COHb is high enough to cause you to turn red/pink you're most likely a goner. The red/pink discoloration from high levels of COHb isn't dependent on time and gravity. It's NOT livor mortis. The red/pink discoloration from CO poisoning is from high levels of COHb and appears BEFORE death which is the usual outcome for such levels of COHb. Not "always" but "usually".
It comes from high levels of carboxyhemoglobin in the blood. Unfortunately, it is often a postmortem examination that reveals such a bright red coloring. The level of carbon monoxide in the blood required to get the skin to that color is so high that it is nearly always fatal.
At Treblinka, ALL alleged cases of CO poisoning were fatal. Red or pink cadavers would have been the rule not the exception as in cases of accidental non-fatal CO poisoning. Of course that's the reason why Nessie refuses to acknowledge that reality since none of his so-called eyewitnesses claimed that the cadavers at Treblinka were red/pink in color. They obviously didn't see any cadavers that had been murdered with CO. Neither can he give a rational explanation for why the victims at Treblinka supposedly turned yellow or had black heads and blue torsos. So much for Nessie's claim that his witnesses were not credible but were truthful. His witnesses are lying like rugs.
You allege it should become commonly and obviously visible just prior to death, but you cannot show any medical source to back your claim up. If what you claim was correct, medical sources would be listing it as a symptom to look for in the most severe, acute cases. Instead, when there are minutes to death, medical sources list symptoms such as unconsciousness.
"loss of consciousness – in cases where there are very high levels of carbon monoxide, death may occur within minutes"
"If you breathe in a lot of CO it can make you pass out or kill you."
"Unconsciousness, eventual death if victim is not removed from source of CO"
None mention cherry red as an obvious symptom when people are going to die. That means it is not an obvious symptom.
