Research links air quality, air safety

first_imgOn Jan. 15, 2009, Capt. Chesley Sullenberger carefully glided his US Airways Airbus A320 onto the Hudson River minutes after the plane lost both its engines. The miraculous touchdown saved all 155 passengers and crew. On the tape of his exchange with air traffic control, Sullenberger could be heard calmly working to avert catastrophe.Pilots face extreme pressure, both on the tarmac and in the air, and their ability to focus is critical to the safety of all those on board. But what happens to their performance when the air quality in the cockpit is less than ideal?In a study by investigators at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, a pilot’s ability to perform well on a series of stressful maneuvers dipped when levels of carbon dioxide on the flight deck rose. The research, supported by a gift from United Technologies to the Chan School’s Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment, was published last week in the Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology.“We wanted to explore if we are doing everything we can to optimize pilot performance with regard to the air they are breathing on the flight deck,” said Joe Allen, an assistant professor of exposure assessment science and principal investigator of the study. “And we think CO2 levels are part of that equation.”Allen has spent years exploring how air quality affects on-the-job performance. A set of 2015 studies he led in collaboration with Syracuse University and SUNY Upstate Medical University found that CO2 levels and ventilation can affect cognitive function.,The new study, an initiative of the School’s Aviation for Health program, “combines our aviation work with the work we have been doing on indoor environments and helps shine a light for the first time on the air quality of the cockpit and how it can affect pilot performance,” said Allen.The research included a series of tests conducted in an A320 flight simulator with 30 commercial airline pilots. During three flight segments of three hours each, pilots were tested without the aid of autopilot. Their performances were assessed by a Federal Aviation Administration-approved pilot examiner.The FAA says that ventilation systems should maintain CO2 levels of 1,500 parts per million in the main cabin, but safety rules regarding cockpit access have made in-flight studies nearly impossible, limiting researchers’ understanding of CO2 concentrations on the flight deck. In one of the few authoritative studies, the European Aviation Safety Agency last year released air-quality measurements from the cockpits of 69 commercial airliners, including eight B787s. The mean CO2 concentration on the B787s was 603 ppm, compared with 835 ppm for the other planes.For each test, Allen and his team adjusted simulator CO2 levels to 700, 1,500, or 2,500 parts per million. The researchers took pilots through standard operations as well as a set of more difficult procedures, like landing an aircraft without one engine, a scenario similar to that faced by Capt. Tammie Jo Shults in her emergency landing of a Southwest Airlines plane in April.,Performances slipped as CO2 concentrations rose. The study notes that the “odds of passing a maneuver was 1.69 times larger when pilots were exposed to 700 parts per million compared to 2,500 parts per million,” and that at “1,500 ppm, the odds of pilot passing were 1.52 times higher than at 2,500 ppm.” In addition, “five of the seven most difficult maneuvers (steep turns, rejected takeoff, circling to land, landing with slat malfunction, and collision avoidance) showed higher passing rates at 700 ppm relative to 1,500 ppm.”The bottom line, said Allen, is that “pilots perform better when there are low concentrations of CO2 on the flight deck.”Study co-author Deborah Donnelly-McLay, a commercial pilot who connected with Allen while she was pursuing her master’s degree in history at the Harvard Extension School several years ago, helped recruit pilots for the research. She said finding willing test subjects wasn’t hard.“They were aware that research in the cockpit was lacking and so they were very happy to participate and to learn that somebody was looking into this and that something was being studied to benefit them,” said Donnelly-McLay.A pilot for 30 years, Donnelly-McLay expects the work to make an impact.“I think the key message for the aviation community, including the pilots, is that air quality is an important component of flight safety, which is of course everyone’s the final goal,” she said. “So any additional knowledge that we can bring to help support this goal just benefits everyone.”Allen said that the study could help inform how the airline industry and regulators approach ventilation standards.“Similar to our research on workers in office buildings, we are now asking the same question about pilots on airplanes — how can we leverage the power of better indoor air quality to optimize human performance?”Other co-authors on the study were Xiaodong Cao, Jose Guillermo Cedeño-Laurent, Skye Flanigan, Piers MacNaughton, Francisco Rueda, John Spengler, and Jose Vallarino.last_img read more

How to fully recharge on your day off

first_imgWhen you have a day away from the office, how do you use your time? Do you stay in bed all day, run errands, or take a day trip? It can be hard for many of us to turn off our work and step away when we have a day off. But, it’s vital you remember to take care of yourself and truly take some personal time. You may think that vegging out and binging Netflix is the best way to relax, but actually there are other ways you can be productive and also fully relax and recharge those batteries.Get up and goAre you planning to run some errands on your day off? If so, your best option is to get up, get ready, and run your errands first thing. That way you aren’t spending the whole day doing things that you may not find particularly enjoyable. This is also a great way to avoid larger crowds and busy traffic that can occur during lunch hours or after work. Remember to not push yourself too hard, though; it’s okay if you don’t get every single thing done in one day.Quiet downA typical workplace can be quite noisy, even smaller offices with fewer employees. Take some time on your day off to really quiet down and tune out the noise around you. Even if you’re not one to meditate, just having some peace and quiet can really help you to feel balanced and centered on your personal day. Reading, working in the garden, or taking a walk are great ways to decompress and find solitude.Move itYou don’t have to run a 5K on your day away from work. But, keeping your body moving will give you more energy and help you to move away from any work stresses you may still be thinking about outside the office. This is especially important for those that spend most of their day behind a desk. Take advantage of your free time and boost your endorphins by getting outdoors. Carry that positive energy you create with you all day and into the days to come at the office. 21SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Wendy Moody Wendy Moody is a Senior Editor with CUInsight.com.

first_imgThe largest line movement of the week goes to the Bills,who have gained 2.5 point in this matchup with the Dolphins. The Bills offense is clearly much better with Josh Allen at the helm, and the defense has played well for stretches this season. Another interesting angle to this game is total only sits at 40. These two teams are averaging over 50 points in there past six matchups, and the defenses have allowed a combined 50.5 points per game this season. The BetQL Mobile App’s Trending Picks and Public Betting tools offer a massive advantage when you’re making bets.

The best way to stay up to date on the current lines is to become a BetQL subscriber.Value Bet of the Week: Detroit Lions (+10) vs Los Angeles RamsThe top value bet of the week is a scary one, with the Lions coming in as huge 10-point home underdogs to the Rams. The Rams have established themselves as one of the favorites in the NFC while the Lions are sputtering following a bad Thanksgiving day loss to the Bears. The line movement is in favor of the Rams after moving from -9 to -10, but the Rams have actually been one of the worst teams to bet on as favorites this season; going 1-5-1 against the spread over their past seven games. The Lions also have the added benefit of hosting a West Coast team traveling east for the dreaded 1 p.m. ET kickoff. WEEK 13 NFL PICKS: Straight up | ATS Largest Public Favorite: Indianapolis Colts (-4) at Jacksonville JaguarsThe Jaguars are collapsing before our eyes following their meltdown in Buffalo, and it’s no surprise that the largest public favorites this week are the surging Colts. While the Colts are an attractive option here with the Jaguars on a seven-game losing streak, it’s tempting to fade the public and side with Jacksonville as four-point home underdogs, as they’ve gone 5-2 against the spread during their losing streak. Both teams are dealing with major injuries and suspensions, so be sure to check the BetQL injury page to get injury updates before you make a decision in this game. Sharps Favorite of the Week: San Francisco 49ers (+10) at Seattle SeahawksWhile there’s some good value on the Lions-Rams line this week, the big bettors are looking to pile on the 49ers as they head up to Seattle to face the Seahawks as 10-point road dogs. This series has been dominated by the Seahawks, as they are 12-2 ATS against the Niners over the past seven years, which is likely why they are currently seeing almost 60 percent of public bets. However, some big early-week money come has in on the 49ers, which has created one of the larger money edges that you’ll see at 42 percent. I expect this edge to tighten up closer to Sunday, but for now you have to consider San Francisco in this spot.  Largest Line Movement: Buffalo Bills (+4) at Miami Dolphins The experts from BetQL are here with a look at Week 13 NFL odds and gambling trends on four key games.
