Coarse Particles and Heart Rate Variability among Older Adults with Coronary Artery Disease in the Coachella Valley, California


Alterations in cardiac autonomic control, assessed by changes in heart rate variability (HRV), provide one plausible mechanistic explanation for consistent associations between exposure to airborne particulate matter (PM) and increased risks of cardiovascular mortality. Decreased HRV has been linked with exposures to PM10 (PM with aerodynamic diameter<or=10… (More)
