Introduction and Background
Justification - because of increasing public concern over maintenance of an environment consistent with the maintenance of human health, welfare, and performance, the need for standards of atmospheric quality has become apparent. While usage patterns of any given air shed will vary to meet local needs, the Criteria to be sought will ultimately determine such Air Quality Standards.
Because human health requirements are a prime consideration in the development of criteria and standards more precise information is needed to delineate the loadings and effects of CO upon humans. But before effect can be determined—and especially such effects as are based upon an epidemiologic basis—a more definitive comprehension of the range of existing levels of carboxyhemoglobin (COHb) must be made available. Furthermore, such investigations should also ascertain the common biological and environmental determinants of this normal body burden of CO in a scientifically sound fashion. Finally, because of the many unresolved problems involved in adequately designing a community net of air sampling stations, the possibility of using man as an integrating, continuious monitor might be considered,
