  1. Air pollution and respiratory morbidity among adults in Southern California.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper reports the results of an investigation of the acute effects of air pollution in 321 nonsmoking adults residing in Southern California.

    Previous epidemiologic investigations of effects of acute exposure to ozone have focused on groups who may not be representative of the general public, such as asthmatics or student nurses.

    For this study, participants recorded the daily incidence of several respiratory symptoms over a 6-month period between 1978 and 1979.

    The authors examined the impact of ambient concentrations of ozone, particulate sulfates, and other air pollutants on the incidence of respiratory morbidity, measured as either upper or lower respiratory tract symptoms.
