英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Background(#br)Air Quality indicators or indices (AQIs) are mainly used for communicating the air pollution levels and risk to the general population. However, very few epidemiological studies have used AQIs for characterizing exposure.(#br)Objective(#br)In the framework of the RESPOZE panel study we evaluated the association of daily ozone AQI levels with the daily occurrence of respiratory symptoms and Peak Expiratory Flow (PEF) and compared the effects with those estimated using measurements from fixed outdoor monitoring sites, in the city of Athens, Greece.(#br)Materials and methods(#br)A panel of 97 children, aged 10–11years, was followed intensively for 35days (5weeks) during the academic year 2013–14. PEF and...
