Three female high school basketball players and two male scorekeepers entered the school gym before all other students. Soon after entering, all 5 began to have respiratory distress; after calling for help, the gym is sealed and the students transported to the ED. One student recalled seeing a large bowl with clear fluid and a small fan in the corner of the gym near where they entered. They do not recall any odor. The students have the following findings: alert and oriented except one female who is mildly sleepy, tachypnea and dyspnea, O2 sat high 80s to low 90s on room air, nausea, miosis, itchy eyes, and headache.

What is the most likely cause for their symptoms?
