This report will be primarily concerned with reviewing and evaluating previous studies comparing personal dosimeter readings and fixed site monitors. The secondary objective will be to assess the correlation, if any, of either or both of these monitoring techniques to various biological measurements of CO exposure including 'end-expired' breath analysis and blood carboxy-hemoglobin (COHb). An accurate assessment of the above parameters is essential especially in urban areas where CO levels above the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) of 10 mg/cu m (9 ppm) for an eight-hour limit and 40 mg/cu m (35 ppm) for a maximum one-hour limit have been reported.
