Acute effects of low levels of ambient ozone on peak expiratory flow rate in a cohort of Australian children
Background. We enrolled a cohort of primary schoolchildren with a history of wheeze (n = 148) in an 11-month longitudinal study to examine the relationship between ambient ozone concentrations and peak expiratory flow rate. Methods. Enrolled children recorded peak expiratory flow rates (PEFR) twice daily. We obtained air pollution, meteorological and pollen data. In all, 125 children remained in the final analysis. Results. We found a significant negative association between daily mean...[Show more]
