Air pollution and the duration of acute respiratory symptoms.
The possibility that air pollution exposure can extend the duration of respiratory symptoms was examined in a diary study of student nurses.
This diary study has already shown associations between air pollution and incidence rates of respiratory symptoms.
After individual risk factors and temperature were controlled for, photochemical oxidants were significantly (p<.0001) associated with the duration of episodes of coughing, phlegm, and sore throat.
