The article explores public health risks from carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide air pollution in indoor ice skating rinks. The pollution risk is attributed to combustion emissions from fossil-fueled ice resurfacing equipment and insufficient facility ventilation. Other topics include occupational exposure limits (OELs) for air carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide, potential health effects related to exposure, and U.S. state indoor air policies. Several control measures are also provided.
