Acute respiratory effects of summer smog in primary school children.
Environmental hygiene. European meeting. Wageningen NLD, 1993/06/09.
In 535 primary school children we studied the effects of exposure to summer smog on respiratory health.
Baseline measurements were performed during low air pollution levels (max. 24-h concentrations of SO2, O3 and NO2 were 55,49 and 58 mug/m3, respectively) consisting of lung function measurements using spirometry and the forced oscillation technique (FOT) and the prevalence of respiratory symptoms, determined by a written questionnaire.
During a summer smog episode, 212 randomly chosen children were re-examined, characterised by 8-h ozone levels>120 mug/m3 (max. 163 mug/m3) and 1-h ozone levels>160 mug/m3 (max. 215 mug/m3).
