While much remains to be understood, individuals with respiratory disease appear to be affected by high levels of air pollution as indicated by subjective reports, clinic and hospital visits, and morbidity. Suspended particulates make up a substantial part of urban air pollution, and specific components of particulate, such as sulfates and nitrates, when combined with moisture, form acids with properties potentially irritating to the lung. The available research literature has not clearly implicated the components of suspended particulates which do exert an immediate effect upon the health status of individuals with respiratory disease. The present study focuses upon the acute or short-term effects of suspended particulates upon asthmatic individuals. It has incorporated several unique features.
