The acute respiratory effects of a wintertime air pollution episode were studied in a general population sample of 112 children who were 7-12 y of age and who lived in a nonurban community.
Spirometry was performed on 6 d, with a fixed interal of 3 wk between successive tests.
During an air pollution episode, an additional pulmonary function test was made.
Acute respiratory symptoms of the children were noted in a diary.
Ambient concentrations of sulfur dioxide, black smoke, particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter less than 10 mum, and nitrogen dioxide were considered as exposure variables.
