Results reveal a positive correlation between indoor and outdoor PM concentrations, the importance of indoor sources and outdoor activity, and building permeability relevance. PM size confirms to be also important in matter of deposition velocity, building penetration and health effects. Some relation between CO and attended urgent cases in the city hospital was found.
