School Environment and Asthma

CO2 does not cause asthma.

CO2 levels are a reflection of ventilation.  Obtaining CO2 levels is a way to evaluate if there is enough outdoor air exchange.  CO2 is exhaled from our lungs with each breath; we are the source of CO2.  Outside air introduced into a space helps keep the levels down.  Controlling asthma triggers like fragrance and dust in a school is equally important to overall school indoor air quality.
