Human Exposure Studies

Carbon Monoxide Detectors
CO alarms are used to potentially reduce exposure to high levels of CO in the home and other locations. Several studies have been conducted to evaluate the large number of false alarms during some time periods and the effect of ambient levels of CO and moisture on false alarm rates.

Air Toxics Microenvironment Exposure and Monitoring Study 
Three microenvironments (100 randomly selected gasoline stations, 10 parking structures and 10 office buildings) were monitored for selected air toxics. Data were used to assist the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) in ranking the health risks of air toxics.

Nitrogen Dioxide
Phase III of a large IAQ program involved personal monitoring for over 600 individuals during a 1-year period.
