Abstract

Objective: To estimate the levels of small breathable suspended particles (PM2.5) as atmospheric markers of environmental tobacco smoke in catering establishments in Zaragoza, Spain. Material and method: An observational study was conducted between October 2006 and April 2008 in various catering establishments in Zaragoza. A SidePack Aerosol Monitor (AM510 model) was used to sample and record the levels of breathable suspended particles (PM2.5) indoors and outdoors, and the following variables were collected: smoking policy (smoking allowed, completely banned, or partially banned with non-smoking sections, physically separated or not); percentage of smokers and presence of cigarette ends, ashtrays or smokers in non-smoking sections. Results: A total of 111 venues were sampled. The level of PM2.5 was eight times higher in smoking venues than in non-smoking ones and also higher than outdoors. The correlation between the level of particles and percentage of smokers was 0.61 (P2.5 can be a simple method to assess the presence of environmental tobacco smoke.
