More About This Textbook


Sick building syndrome (SBS) describes situations where building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building, but no specific illness or cause can be identified. This volume focuses on the reasons why sick building syndrome occurs, and gives specific recommendations on remediation of these buildings. It also contains several chapters by physicians who treat individuals with SBS on the causes of sick building syndrome, how to prevent it, and what to do when it occurs. Coverage includes mycology, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, allergic rhinitis, fungi, asthma, and mycotoxins.
