Mycobacterium parafortuitum into the testing room until steady state is reached.
BOISE: Ultrasonic humidifiers that aerosolize
water pose a health hazard if tap water is used in them, since minerals and other materials dissolved in the water may be released as particles small enough to be inhaled deep into the lungs.
The ideal bioweapon is hard to detect from the usual microbial flora, has person-to-person spread, and is easy to aerosolize
. There are two groups of organisms of public health concern: Those that cause a high morbidity or a high mortality.
Both of these jobs are dust-inducing activities known to aerosolize
bat guano [National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) 1997] and were the greatest job-duty risk factors identified in this investigation.
Aum Shinrikyo members testified that the odors were caused by their efforts to aerosolize
a liquid suspension of Bacillus anthracis in an attempt to cause an inhalational anthrax epidemic.
Moreover, because energy is required to aerosolize
anthrax spores, opening a letter, even if it contained anthrax, would be unlikely to place a person at substantial risk.
Rose said that hot tub jets aerosolize
the mycobacteria, allowing them to spread throughout a room.
This reduction of fumes means that acid aerosolizes
into the atmosphere at a significantly reduced rate.
