Abstract

BACKGROUND: Residential wood stove use has become more prevalent in high-income countries, but only limited data exist on indoor exposure to PM

METHODS: From 2014 to 2016, we collected 7-day indoor air samples in 137 homes of pregnant women in Northern New England, using a micro-environmental monitor. We examined associations of wood stove use with PM

RESULTS: Median (IQR) household PM

CONCLUSIONS: Homes with wood stoves, particularly those that were older and non-EPA-certified or burning wet wood had higher concentrations of indoor air combustion-related pollutants.
