My doctor told me something very important about mental alertness
once. She said that many people have minor sinusitis or congestion that
they don't notice, but it is just enough to cause low-level fatigue
and lesser memory, because less oxygen is processed. And it could be
caused dust mites, particulates, carpeting. Relatively minor measures
like an air filter or dust control protocols can markedly increase your
breathing efficiency--and, in turn, mental alertness--if this is the case.

I *think* I understand this, but would you define it?
