efficacy of interventions targeting household air pollution from residential wood stoves - household air cleaner
Wood is usually used for residential heating, but there is limited evidence
Basic interventions to reduce wood smoke exposure in indoor environments.
Random test of indoor Muyan asthma (ARTIS)
This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of residential interventions to reduce PM exposure in wood stoves.
As part of three-
Randomized placebo group
Controlled trials of two families
First-level interventions were evaluated: wood furnace replacement and air filtration devices.
Exposure results include indoor measurements such as continuous pm2. 5.
5, the number of particles and carbon monoxide.
Median indoor pm2.
The concentration of 5 is 17. 5 μg/m3 in wood
Burned houses before intervention.
There was no significant reduction in Pm2.
Five concentrations were observed in 40 families who underwent placebo filter intervention.
The wood stove replacement was accepted in 16 households, and there was no significant change in pm2.
5 or the number of particles. PM2.
The 5 concentrations in the filter intervention chamber decreased by 68%.
Compared to placebo, the overall pm2. 5 of the air filtration unit residence.
5 minus 63% (95% CI: 47–75%).
The filter unit intervention is more effective and less costly compared to the wood stove replacement, however, compliance issues indicate that additional strategies to improve indoor air quality in the home using wood stoves need to be evaluated.
