Timeline series of particle concentrations and diameter measured by aerodynamic particle sizer (APS) during intubation, endonasal access, pituitary tumour removal and extubation. a Total particle number concentrations with linear and log scales shown in dark and light blue, respectively. Dashed lines represent the detection limit (mean + 3 standard deviations) during an empty theatre (green) and during theatre setup (red). b Aerosol size distribution with colours showing the number concentration in each size bin. The integrated size distributions correspond to total concentrations
