We analyzed the association of particle number and PM(2.5) concentrations with mortality and cardiorespiratory hospital admissions in Prague. Number concentrations of submicron particles in the range of 15-487 nm were measured continuously at a central site in 2006. The particle number concentrations were integrated into four groups with count median diameters of 31 (NC(31)), 128 (NC(128)), and 346 nm (NC(346)). The total number concentration of submicron particles 15-487 nm (NC(tot)) was also… CONTINUE READING
