Surveys were performed to assess the acute health effects of aerial application of malathion bait over a large urban area.
Three indirect attempts to assess utilization of health care services were made: (1) surveillance of a major hospital emergency department was undertaken, (2) ambulance dispatches were reviewed, and (3) emergency treatments for asthma at a university hospital were reviewed.
These assessments were negative but insensitive.
