Concentrated ambient ultrafine particle exposure induces cardiac changes in young healthy volunteers.

Abstract

RATIONALE Exposure to ambient ultrafine particles has been associated with cardiopulmonary toxicity and mortality. Adverse effects specifically linked to ultrafine particles include loss of sympathovagal balance and altered hemostasis. OBJECTIVES To characterize the effects of acute exposure to ambient ultrafine particles in young healthy humans… (More)
