Title Hygienic assessment of deozonised air
Original title Gigieničeskaja ocenka deozonirovanija vozduha [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Feb. 1985, No.2, p.12-14. 3 ref.
Abstract Some physiological parameters were measured in volunteers aged 18-32 who were exposed to deozonised, ozonised and normal air during a period of rest, a period of exercise on bicycle ergometers and a recovery period. Subjects breathing deozonised air showed reduced capacities for physical work in comparison with controls breathing normal air; raising the ozone concentration above normal improved performance. Because windowless or air-conditioned premises may be deficient in ozone, the artificial supplementation of workplace air with ozone (to give a concentration of 55µg/m3) is recommended.
