INTRODUCTION With seven million inhabitants, Santiago de Chile reaches high levels of air pollution in winter, the particulate matter usually exceeds WHO standards. OBJECTIVE To assess the influence of air pollution caused by particulate matter on children's hospitalizations due to respiratory diseases between 2001 and 2005 in the Metropolitan Region of Chile, independently from the environmental presence of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). MATERIAL AND METHOD 72,479 public and private… Expand
Differential Effects of Size-specific Particulate Matter on Lower Respiratory Infections in Children: A Multi-city Time-series Analysis in Sichuan, China.
TLDR
The study provided evidence for short-term effects of different PM fractions on children LRI hospitalizations in Southwestern China, which will be useful for making and promoting policies on air quality standards in order to protect children's health. Expand
Air Pollutants’ Concentrations Are Associated with Increased Number of RSV Hospitalizations in Polish Children
TLDR
The short-term impact of air pollutants on RSV hospitalizations in Polish children in the period 2010–2019 was evaluated and statistically significant interactions between each of the pollutants, and between the pollutants and the year of the study were shown. Expand
Constructing an Air Quality Health Index for children: A case study in Shanghai, China

TLDR
AQHIc might comprehensively reflect the combined effects of air pollution in Shanghai and it could be a more valid prediction index for evaluating air pollution-related health risks in children. Expand
Viral respiratory infections and air pollutants
TLDR
The evidence suggests that exposure to air contaminants induces inflammatory states, modulates the immune system, and increases molecules’ expression that favors respiratory viruses’ pathogenesis and affects the respiratory system. Expand
Investigation of relationship between particulate matter (PM2.5) and meteorological parameters in Isfahan, Iran
Introduction: Estimating air pollution levels in areas with no measurements is a major concern in health-related studies. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the amount of exposure toExpand

Abstract Most previous studies on air pollution have used mass concentrations and elemental constituents of fine particulate matter (PM 2.5 ) from monitoring stations as dose metrics when determiningExpand
How atmospheric pollutants impact the development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer: A var-based model.
TLDR
The VAR model was able to identify the air pollutants that have the most significant impact on the diseases analyzed and explained the interrelationship between them, indicating that air pollution influences the clinical state of people who have these diseases and even contributes to their development. Expand
A Methodology for Data-Driven Decision-Making in the Monitoring of Particulate Matter Environmental Contamination in Santiago of Chile.
TLDR
It is proposed that monitoring of air quality may be achieved by employing data analytics to generate information within the context of data-driven decision making to prevent and/or adequately alert the population about possible critical episodes of air contamination. Expand
Advantages and challenges of the implementation of a low-cost particulate matter monitoring system as a decision-making tool
TLDR
Results illustrate that low-cost sensors, aided by machine learning algorithms, could provide a reliable enough general screening of particulate matter within a large city, constituting a valuable decision-making tool for environmental oversight, as well as a powerful preventive and deterrent approach for compliance.

TLDR
A greater effect of fine and coarse PM on asthma hospital admissions compared with PM10 in children is suggested, including asthma, AR, UPRD, and LWRD. Expand
Association between Levels of Fine Particulate and Emergency Visits for Pneumonia and other Respiratory Illnesses among Children in Santiago, Chile.
TLDR
It is concluded that urban air pollutant mixture, particularly fine particulates, adversely affect the respiratory health of children residing in Santiago. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that urban air pollutant mixture, particularly fine particulates, adversely affect the respiratory health of children residing in Santiago. Expand
Air pollution and health effects: A study of medical visits among children in Santiago, Chile.
TLDR
Time-series analyses of 2 years of daily visits to primary health care clinics in Santiago, Chile, indicate a statistically significant association between PM10 and medical visits for lower respiratory symptoms in children ages 3-15 and in children under age 2. Expand
Coarse particulate matter air pollution and hospital admissions for cardiovascular and respiratory diseases among Medicare patients.
TLDR
There were no statistically significant associations between coarse particulates and hospital admissions for cardiovascular and respiratory diseases after adjustment for PM2.5. Expand
Poisons in the Air: A Cause of Chronic Disease in Children
TLDR
Special attention has to be given to children's unique differences in order to evaluate the clinical consequences of their toxic exposures, and the key roles of poison centers, clinical toxicologists, and pediatricians can collaborate on the identification, assessment, and surveillance of toxic risk for child health and development.

Outdoor air pollution and emergency department visits for asthma among children and adults: A case-crossover study in northern Alberta, Canada
TLDR
Exposure to ambient levels of air pollution is an important determinant of ED visits for asthma, particularly among young children and the elderly, according to a time stratified case-crossover design. Expand
Air pollution and retained particles in the lung.
TLDR
Observations indicate for the first time that residence in a region with high levels of ambient particles results in pulmonary retention of large quantities of fine and ultrafine particle aggregates, some of which appear to be combustion products. Expand
Update in environmental and occupational medicine 2005.
TLDR
Airborne PM is generally defined on the basis of the size distribution of the particles, and ultrafine particles (UFPs) have a diameter less than 100 nm (0.1 m) and demonstrate very high deposition in human alveoli. Expand
Acute pulmonary toxicity of urban particulate matter and ozone.
TLDR
Enhanced DNA synthesis indicates that particulate matter from ambient air can exacerbate epithelial lesions in the lungs, and may extend beyond air pollutant interactions, such as to effects of inhaled particles in the lung of compromised individuals. Expand
