Individuals suffering from respiratory and cardiovascular disease should avoid spending time outdoors on days when pollutant concentrations reach levels that have caused health problems in the past.

Urban pollution levels in the United States and Canada can be monitored using the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI), which can be accessed through the appropriate government agency, online, and through news channels (reviewed by Abelsohn and Stieb, 2011). Patients with respiratory and cardiovascular disease should monitor the severity of their symptoms in relation to the AQHI, thereby allowing them to use the AQHI to predict periods when spending time outdoors or certain activities would exacerbate their symptoms. Monitoring the AQHI will reveal that some patients react adversely to even low levels of air pollution, depending on what activities they engage in and how much time is spent outdoors.

Once a patient learns how their symptoms react to air pollution levels, as determined by the AQHI, they can adjust their outdoor activities accordingly (reviewed by Abelsohn and Stieb, 2011). For example, patients who are still physically active may want to reschedule a strenuous outdoor activity to periods when pollution levels have returned to a lower level or move the activity indoors. Patients with more severe disease may benefit from avoiding outdoor activity altogether, closing the windows, and utilizing a filtration system capable of removing many of the pollutants discussed above.
