Figure 3

PEF changes caused by an ADS event from 0 (ADS day) to 3 days after ADS exposure in combined 2012 and 2013 (open circles), 2012 (black circles), and 2013 (triangles), with 95% confidence intervals (error bars). Data are controlled for age, gender, height, weight, and presence of asthma, allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, atopic dermatitis, and food allergies; meteorological variables such as daily temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure; and the linear time trend. There are significant differences in the decrement of PEF on days 0 and 1 between 2012 and 2013 (*).
