Effect of ambient winter air pollution on respiratory health of children with chronic respiratory symptoms.
The acute respiratory effects of ambient air pollution were studied in a panel of 73 children with chronic respiratory symptoms in the winter of 1990 to 1991.
The participating children were selected from all children aged 6 to 12 yr in Wageningen and Bennekom, two small, nonindustrial towns in the east of the Netherlands.
Peak flow was measured twice daily with MiniWright meters.
A diary was used to register the occurrence of acute respiratory symptoms and medication use by the children.
Exposureto air pollution was characterized by the ambient concentrations of sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), black smoke (BS), and particulate matter less than 10 mum (PM10).
