INDOOR AIR QUALITY
INTRODUCTION
Indoor air is a dominant exposure for humans. More than half of the body?s intake during a lifetime is air inhaled indoor. Thus, most illnesses related to environmental exposures stem from indoor air exposure. During the last two decades there has been increasing concern over the effects of indoor air quality on health. Indoor pollutants can emanate from a range of sources.
Home : - The health impacts from indoor exposure to combustion products from heating, cooking, and the smoking of tobacco are critical. The symptoms associated with pollutants emitted from building materials known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which arise from sources including paints, varnishes, solvents, and preservatives. the phenomenon that has become known as Sick Building Syndrome (SBS), where the occupants of certain affected buildings repeatedly describe a complex range of vague and often subjective health complaints.
Industry : - Exposure to asbestos may be an important risk factor for the chronic respiratory disease mesothelioma.
Pharma and Medical : - The health effects of inhaled biological particles can be significant, as a large variety of biological materials are present in indoor environments. Their role in inducing illness through immune mechanisms, infectious processes, and direct toxicity is considered.
Outdoor sources can be the main contributors to indoor concentrations of some contaminants. Of particular significance is Radon, the radioactive gas that arises from outside, yet only presents a serious health risk when found inside buildings. Radon and its decay products are now recognized as important indoor pollutants, and their effects are explored. Hence, air should be continuously sampled, monitored, and modeled.
Air pollution in five main contexts :
  • Monitoring
  • Modeling
  • Risk Assessment
  • Health, and
  • Indoor Air Pollution
ATTRIBUTE
  • AUM Indoor Air quality Monitoring supersedes conventional technologies : -
    • All in one monitoring device with single probe for monitoring all types of gases and biological pollutants.
    • Best option for maximizing utility year-round with accuracy of data and economy.
    • Simple and Easy to use without any learning curve.
    • Low cost and handy.
    • Data always, available, anywhere with triggering preventive alarms and events in case of emergency.
  • AUM IAQ is Capable of air quality monitoring (in-situ and real time) with capabilities of communicating the observed parameter data to command and control stations not necessarily co located with the sensing system.
  • Effortlessly measures different classes of Air Quality
    • Measurements of Emissions - also called source sampling - when a particular emission source is measured, generally by on the spot tests
    • Meteorological Measurement - Measures meteorological factors that show how pollutants are transferred from source to recipient. (For. Ex. Petrol Stations emit Benzene that affects nearby habitats)
    • Ambient Air Quality - Measures the quality of all the air in a particular place. Almost all the evidence of health effects is based on these measurements.
    • Industrial and Hospital Hygiene sampling - for testing the air quality inside of factories, hospitals, Pharmaceuticals, BPO etc.
    • Commercial Indoor monitoring - to evaluate the quality of air in working or living spaces.
