BA for Air sickness caused by recycled air


Recycled air sickness
Evidence is emerging that air conditioning units may recycle particles in the air to other areas in the same circulation system. Not refreshing the system with an adequate amount of oxygen may also add to the problem. The particles being recycled may emerge from things associated with the embodying container such as a plane, coach or building or other people within the contained area. This is especially worrying if the other people have infectious diseases.

Recirculated air has various effects upon people. Some people exhibit no visible signs and symptoms whilst others become very ill and exhibit the signs and symptoms of many diseases either immediately or sometime after. The “recycled air syndrome” affects everyone in various degrees and can be extremely dangerous if someone like an airline pilot becomes affected during a flight. Caution and diligence must be exercised after contact until a solution is evolved.
