Remedies The most important thing you can do for your child is to observe their daily and nightly habits and report all of your concerns to their pediatrician.

Record-setting wildfires have burnt through northern California over the past month, blanketing huge swathes of the western United States in a smoky haze and destroying an area larger than London. Now scientists are hoping that the fiery summer will help them determine whether exposure to wildfire smoke damages health over the long term.

Finding answers is becoming more urgent because the behaviour of wildfires — in the United States and elsewhere — is expected to shift in the coming decades. Climate models predict that many more people worldwide will be exposed to toxic smoke as these blazes become more common and intense. The sensors used in such research measure only the size of particles in the air, making it hard for scientists to link a specific health impact to diesel exhaust, wood smoke or any other source of pollution.
That is especially true in the case of wildfires, which consume trees, buildings, synthetic materials and anything else in their path. But Migliaccio is attempting to sort out just that.
In the summer of , a wildfire 13 kilometres from Seeley Lake, Montana, exposed the town of 1, people to nearly 30 times the level of particulate matter considered safe by the US Environmental Protection Agency EPA. The fire burned for 70 days, and after it subsided, Migliaccio and his colleagues collected blood samples and measured respiratory function in volunteers, whom they plan to track for years.

The researchers are now collecting data from residents of two other towns in western Montana. The scientists are going door-to-door to recruit volunteers, and more than 2, households have responded, says environmental epidemiologist Irva Hertz-Picciotto. The UC-Davis team is also collecting placentas and cord blood from women who were pregnant during the fires, to determine the chemicals to which their developing children might have been exposed.
Researchers are also beginning to untangle how the composition of material burnt during a wildfire affects the body. The UC-Davis researchers are collecting ash given off by the fires in northern California to analyse its chemical composition and to look for links to specific health effects in their volunteers.

In August, smoke from the Mendocino Complex fire — a blaze that has burnt some , hectares in California — drifted kilometres south to the research centre, which is home to an outdoor colony of primates bred for research. Lisa Miller, a respiratory immunologist at UC-Davis, and her colleagues have collected blood samples and other data from the infant monkeys.

In , another group of monkeys at the centre was exposed to smoke from a wildfire kilometres away. Recent chest scans of the infants, who are now 10 years old, suggest that the animals have a chronic lung disease called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis that causes scarring and makes it difficult to take deep breaths.
Once the researchers determine how exposure to smoke harms the lungs and immune systems in people and monkeys, it will be easier to prevent or treat the damage, Miller says. There is no time to waste, Hertz-Picciotto adds.
