It has been reported that a rise in positive small air ions occurs several hours before other evidence of a storm front, and it has been suggested that the increase in these ions might be responsible for the changes in clinical status reported by such patients. Twelve patients were selected on the basis of a history of weather-induced worsening of asthma. They measured pulmonary functions four… CONTINUE READING
