How “Thick Air” Can Impact Meetings

We’ve all been there: At the end of a meeting the air feels thick, your head is pounding, and you feel low on energy. IDEAL air purifiers create a fresh atmosphere that keeps this dreaded tiredness at bay.

When you can “cut through the air” with a knife

It sometimes feels like the air is in short supply in conference rooms or you can cut through the air during meetings. This is often falsely attributed to the lack of oxygen in the air. The level of oxygen does drop slightly during a meeting, although this has very little effect and is not the cause of discomfort. However, the opposite is true of carbon dioxide (CO2). As each person exhales more CO2 is released into the room. The concentration of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) also plays a factor when it comes to comfort in the conference room. Furthermore, the vapors produced by perspiration and breathing and the vapors produced from tech devices, furniture, wallpaper, carpets, and more can also play a role in the level of comfort one experiences during a meeting. The concentration of carbon dioxide and VOCs increase significantly throughout the course of a meeting and, in certain combinations, is presumed to cause headaches, fatigue, and poor concentration. Therefore, poor air quality may be responsible for the tiredness experienced during meetings.
