Indoor Air Quality Handbook
Co-edited by Jack Spengler, Akira Yamaguchi Professor of Environmental Health and Human Habitation in the Department of Environmental Health, Harvard School of Public Health, the handbook describes human and building systems and how they interact with each other.
Field Guide for the Determination of Biological Contaminants in Environmental Samples, Second Edition
This second edition of AIHA's Field Guide incorporates the most recent findings and research that reflect prevailing occupational health and safety and industrial hygiene practices. Its nine chapters provide the most current solutions to problems facing professionals working with biological contaminants. This guide serves as an academic and professional reference.
Damp Indoor Spaces and Health
Damp Indoor Spaces and Health covers a broad range of topics. The book not only examines the relationship between damp or moldy indoor environments and adverse health outcomes but also discusses how and where buildings get wet, how dampness influences microbial growth and chemical emissions, ways to prevent and remediate dampness, and elements of a public health response to the issues. A comprehensive literature review finds sufficient evidence of an association between damp indoor environments and some upper respiratory tract symptoms, coughing, wheezing, and asthma symptoms in sensitized persons. This important book will be of interest to a wide-ranging audience of science, health, engineering, and building professionals, government officials, and members of the public.
Air Sampling Instruments, Ninth Edition
The 9th Edition of Air Sampling Instruments offers 23 chapters on contemporary air sampling practices and procedures. Theory chapters cover a broad array of critical topics, including sampling strategies in the workplace and the community, particle and gas phase interactions, size-selective health hazard sampling, and calibration of gas and vapor samplers and aerosol samplers.
Clearing the Air: Asthma and Indoor Air Exposures
This book examines how indoor pollutants contribute to asthma-- its causation, prevalence, triggering, and severity. The committee discusses asthma among the general population and in sensitive subpopulations including children, low-income individuals, and urban residents. Based on the most current findings, the book also evaluates the scientific basis for mitigating the effects of indoor air pollutants implicated in asthma.
