Air pollution level in study areas as an indicator of frequency of subjective complaints among students

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Based on the WHO data air pollution is the cause of significant disease burden. The quality of indoor air is influenced by outdoor air, however, indoor furniture and material emissions, as well as direct anthropogenic stream pollution should be considered. Since students spend a considerable amount of time indoors, and belong to the population's risk group, it is especially important to provide them a healthy and safe school environment. Higher concentrations of chemical substances (dust, carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds) and inadequate microclimate indicators increase certain complaint rate and frequency among students. The incidence of complaints is also affected by the students' age and gender, as well as by any allergies the person has.
