How can BREATHE|Smart help you?
Children are more vulnerable to breathing in polluted air than adults. For their size, they breathe more air each minute than an adult and buggies and prams put them at the level of car exhausts. Use BREATHE|Smart on your pram so you can monitor exposure to air pollution, and in the nursery or bedroom so you know when you need to ventilate.
Cyclists breathe more deeply and at a quicker rate than pedestrians while in closer proximity to exhaust fumes, which can increase the number of airborne particles penetrating the lungs. Evidence has shown that avoiding busy roads can reduce the amount of pollution you breathe by up to 70%. BREATHElSmart can help you choose low pollution routes.
If you frequently run in urban environments, you could be putting yourself at risk from a number of health conditions due to air pollution. Heavy breathing during exercise means you inhale more pollution, and particles get lodged deeper in your lungs. BREATHE|Smart can help you monitor and reduce your exposure by showing you where and when air pollution is high.
Studies have shown that if a baby is exposed to air pollution in the womb, it can alter their lung development. If your baby is exposed to a lot of air pollution, it can also lead to premature birth and low birth weight. You can't avoid air pollution completely while you are pregnant but BREATHE|Smart can help you monitor and reduce the amount you breathe in.
Air pollution can induce the acute exacerbation of COPD and onset of asthma. Monitor pollution levels at home and when out so you know when to alter routes or limit exercise.
