I once used a mosquito coil under my bed burning it all night. It seems like using them in an enclosed space does not pose a health issue. Nevertheless, I will still be more cautious about using them.

…using the “nose-only” exposure method that they proposed, the researchers concluded that “overnight exposure to the smoke from burning mosquito coils (manufactured in Indonesia) is unlikely to be associated with any unreasonable health risk.” This is a noteworthy conclusion given that the level of exposure to those rats (6 h a day, 5 days a week for 13 weeks) was substantial.
