  1. The feasibility of using a double blind experimental cross-over design to study interventions for sick building syndrome.

    Article - En anglais

    Methodological problems have limited scientific investigation of the causes of and solutions for sick building syndrome.

    The feasibility of using an experimental double blind cross-over study to resolve many of these methodological problems was assessed in a pilot study.

    The experimental intervention was to vary the amount of outdoor air from 10 cubic feet per minute per person (cfmpp) to 20 cfmpp or 50 cfmpp by central manipulation of the building heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system.

    Over 6 consecutive study weeks, 2 trials of rates were administered in random order.
