AbstractThis paper describes the preliminary results obtained from a randomized intervention study investigating the impact of ventilation rates on indoor air quality (IAQ) and the respiratory health of asthmatic children in Québec City, Canada. The objective of this study was to determine whether increased ventilation will lead to a corresponding decrease in the number of asthmatic symptoms in children, to correlate ventilation rates with IAQ, and to support research for determining health-based ventilation rates.
