Friday's Comments

Unfortunately, the pollen collector appears to not be correctly calibrated. Not sure when this can be fixed but I don't believe that there will be any more pollen reports this fall. I do apologize for this inconvenience. Hopefully the bugs can be fixed over the winter so that the device will be ready to go for the spring allergy season. -- Jay M. Portnoy, MD

Results are expressed as the median value of the particles per cubic meter and represent an integrated 24 hour collection.

Laser particle counts are the number of particles per cubic meter divided into 6 different size ranges. A laser beam literally counts the number of such particles as they are sucked past a detector. There is evidence that increased numbers of particles, particularly in the smaller ranges, are associated with heart diseases. That is why we measure it.
