Measuring exposure to environmental tobacco smoke in studies of acute health effects.
The relations among three methods of measuring exposure to environmental tobacco smoke, questionnaires, urinary cotinine, and a passive monitor for ambient nicotine, were investigated in a study of 48 children in Minnesota in 1989.
Subjects were all under 2 years of age and did not attend day care.
Passive nicotine monitors were placed in the activity room and the child's bedroom for 1 week, urine samples were collected at the beginning and end of the week for cotinine analysis, and a detailed questionnaire concerning cigarette smoking was administered at the end of the week.
These same measures were obtained weekly for 8 weeks for 22 of the children.
