Air quality in nursing homes affects the health of the elderly guests

A search conducted in 50 institutes of seven different countries has shown that even moderate levels of pollutants may increase the risk of respiratory problems.

The research is described in the European Respiratory Journal and was the first survey conducted on the subject and involved 50 nursing homes in Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy, Greece, Poland and Sweden. Researchers measured the levels of some pollutants and compared this to the health of 600 elderly guests living in the same facilities, with special regards to pulmonary functions.

It emerged that the levels of indoor pollutants are responsible for wheezing breathing, cough and obstructive pulmonary disease; people over 80 were the most sensitive (source Geriatric study on health effects of air quality in nursing homes in Europe)

Data from this study are of great importance because they investigate a little-explored area, that is the correlation between indoor air pollution and the health of the elderly.

Much is still to discover, but as of now we can conclude that a measure so trivial as not to be deemed worthy of attention from the leaders of healthcare facilities, namely the improvement of air indoors, can significantly improve the state of health of the population.

Sanitised and purified air reduces sick-leaves by up to 40% and improves the performance of the operators.

Ionized clean air reduces the phenomena of intolerance to the environment and burnout
