Carbon dioxide (CO2) demandcontrolled ventilation in ...

· Purpose To study the effects of a CO2 demandcontrolled ventilation system (variable flow) in computer classrooms on perceived air quality and sick building syndrome. Methods University students (27 % women) participated in a blinded study. Two classrooms had variable flow (mean ac/h); two others had constant ventilation flow (mean ac/h). After one week, ventilation conditions …

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Safety Program

has been published to help facilities understand CO2 health effects and control CO2 exposures. This Carbon Dioxide Safety Program is designed to fill this gap. Breathing concentrations of 30% CO2, even with 70% oxygen, leads to unconsciousness in 30 seconds Your facility may have been doing what it has been doing for years, not knowing that circumstances can change just a little bit and lead ...

Carbon Dioxide in Indoor Air | National Collaborating ...

Carbon dioxide (CO 2) levels were measured and ranged from 412 ppm in an unoccupied classroom to 1,130 ppm in the school library and 1,660 ppm in an occupied classroom that had closed windows. Parents are now concerned and the school board has asked you, as Medical Officer of Health, about the potential health risks to students from CO 2 levels that exceed formal workplace standards.

A ventilation intervention study in classrooms to improve ...

· Classroom ventilation rates often do not meet building standards, although it is considered to be important to improve indoor air quality. Poor indoor air quality is thought to influence both children’s health and performance. Poor ventilation in The Netherlands most often occurs in the heating season. To improve classroom ventilation a tailor made mechanical ventilation device was developed ...

Identifying poorly ventilated areas and using CO2 monitors

Check that mechanical systems provide outdoor air, temperature control, or both. If a system only recirculates air and has no outdoor air supply, the area is likely to be poorly ventilated ; Identify areas that feel stuffy or smell bad ; Using carbon dioxide (CO2) monitors. People exhale carbon dioxide (CO2) when they breathe out. If there is a buildup of CO2 in an area it can indicate that ...

General hazards of Carbon Dioxide HSE

General hazards of Carbon Dioxide For over a century CO 2 has been recognised as a workplace hazard at high concentrations. However, CO 2 is naturally present in the air we breathe at a concentration of about % and is not harmful to health at low concentrations. At room temperature and atmospheric pressure CO 2 is a colourless and odourless gas and, because of this, people are unable to ...

Sick Classrooms Caused by Rising CO2 Levels

· The accepted standard CO2 level in a classroom is 1000. That level is easy to maintain when a classroom is empty. Fill the classroom up with a bunch of students and the level of CO2 rises dramatically. That’s because carbon dioxide makes up a part of every breath you exhale causing the levels to rise as more people gather.
