  • Description:
    The purpose of this health consultation is to discuss public health issues that may result from being a participant in, or spectator of, indoor motorized sporting events and to make health recommendations to protect persons involved in these activities. The specific case illustrating this discussion concerns the non-fatal poisoning of several children by carbon monoxide (CO). The children had been participating in motocross events at an indoor track that was formerly a golf dome. The local health department and a state legislator asked the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) for a public health opinion regarding the case. MDCH conducted this health consultation for the federal Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) under a cooperative agreement. ATSDR conducts public health activities (assessments/consultations, advisories, education) at sites of environmental contamination and concern. ATSDR is primarily an advisory agency. Therefore, its reports usually identify what actions are appropriate to be undertaken by the regulatory agency overseeing the site, other responsible parties, or the research or education divisions of ATSDR. As such, ATSDR recommendations may not encompass all types of federal and state requirements from a regulatory perspective. Thus, the purpose of a health consultation is not to evaluate or confirm regulatory compliance but to determine if any potentially harmful exposures are occurring or may occur in the future. Prepared by the Michigan Department of Community Health under a cooperative agreement with the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry Division of Health Assessment and Consultation.
