The Atmotube is a portable device that measures the quality of the air around you, including the atmospheric pressure, temperature and humidity levels. It connects easily to your phone via an App and Bluetooth, that provides real-time udpates, so you can also see what the temperature is, and whether or not the air is polluted (which is great for an asthmatic during fire season!). It has 7 days battery life and is USB chargeable. If air quality matters, buy it.
The average person takes over 20,000 breaths per day. Most of the time, we never think about WHAT we breathe in and how air quality affects our bodies.
Office equipment, paints and lacquers, cleaning supplies, and furnishings often emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). These gases can have adverse short and long-term health effects on our respiratory systems. Over time, exposure to VOCs has been linked to an increased risk of
heart disease, stroke, liver and brain damage, and even cancer.
Particulate matter is a mixture of tiny particles and droplets made up of dirt, dust, soot, smoke, and liquid compounds that pollute the air. The ingredients can vary by season (for example, soot and smoke from wood fires, which are more common in winter, are a source of particulate matter).
When you inhale particle matter, it can harm your lungs, especially if you already have chronic lung disease or asthma. Particulate matter can even cause heart attacks, lung cancer, and low birth weight in babies. Exposure to this type of air pollution often leads to eye and throat irritation.
Particle matter typically consists of nitrates, sulfates, organic chemicals, metals, and soil or dust particles. With Atmotube PRO, you can easily monitor the air you breathe and and take steps to mitigate dangerous exposure before it’s too late.
