Disease relevance of Air Pollution, Indoor


High impact information on Air Pollution, Indoor

  • Lung cancer and indoor air pollution in Xuan Wei, China [4].
  • STUDY SELECTION--In part 1, published studies of indoor air quality were included if they reported a mean concentration of carbon monoxide, nicotine, or particulate matter from measurements taken in one or more bars, restaurants, offices, or residences with at least one smoker [5].
  • Indoor air pollution: NO, NO2, CO, and CO2 [6].
  • CONCLUSION: These results demonstrate that exposure to a combination of NO2 and SO2, at concentrations which can be encountered during episodes of increased outdoor and indoor air pollution, enhances the airway response to inhaled allergen in asthmatic subjects [7].
  • The objective of this study was to investigate a relationship between indoor air pollution from heating and cooking with coal-burning stoves and from environmental tobacco smoke (ETS), and the level of urinary 1-hydroxypyrene (1-OH-PY) [8].

Biological context of Air Pollution, Indoor

  • Prior to its acceptance for dealing with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and CO2, efforts were made to determine whether the incorporation of this amount of biomass into the indoor space can have an (negative) impact on indoor air quality [9].
  • Indoor air quality in cold climates: hazards and abatement measures. Summary of an APCA international specialty conference [10].

Associations of Air Pollution, Indoor with chemical compounds

  • One type of heater was lower emitting for nitrogen dioxide, but emitted greater amounts of carbon monoxide and formaldehyde (the latter becoming significant to indoor air quality) [11].
  • Thus, latex paints have the potential for having a major impact on indoor air quality (IAQ) [12].
  • Two new units are proposed for the evaluation of indoor air quality using the decibel concept, which give a much better approximation of the human perception of odour intensity, compared to the CO2 and total volatile organic compounds (TVOC) concentration scales: the decicarbdiox and the devitvoc [13].
  • METHODS: A questionnaire survey and indoor air quality (IAQ) measurements including the concentration of gaseous nicotine in indoor air were performed in 10 medium-sized and large-scale workplaces representing industrial, service, and office environments [14].
  • 2-Ethylhexanol has been identified as a volatile organic compound (VOC) that contributes to the deterioration of indoor air quality [15].
