Background: Many studies have analyzed the relationship between average particulate matter less than 2.5{\mu}m in diameter (PM2.5) exposure and the human health, but few studies have focused on the effect of the freqnecy of PM2.5 concentration. The main purpose of this study is to analyze the relationship between the first occurrence of hospitalization for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and PM2.5 exposure, considering average PM2.5 concentration and the frequency of high PM2.5 concentration… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper


Incident cardiovascular disease and particulate matter air pollution in South Korea using a population-based and nationwide cohort of 0.2 million adults
Using a population-based nationwide cohort exposed to relatively high PM concentration, this study confirmed the association between PM 2.5 and CVD incidence that was reported in previous studies mostly with low-dose environments. Expand
Long-Term Exposure to Fine Particulate Matter and Cardiovascular Disease in China.
Evidence is provided that elevated long-term PM2.5 exposures lead to increased CVD risk in China, and the effects are more pronounced at higher PM 2.5 levels. Expand
Long-term exposure to PM2.5 and stroke: A systematic review and meta-analysis of cohort studies.
Long-term exposure to PM2.5 is an important risk factor for stroke, and policies aimed at reducing particulate matters will benefit public health a lot. Expand
Epidemiological time series studies of PM2.5 and daily mortality and hospital admissions: a systematic review and meta-analysis
The consistency of the evidence for adverse health effects of short-term exposure to PM2.5 across a range of important health outcomes and diseases supports policy measures to control PM 2.5 concentrations. Expand
All-cause mortality risk associated with long-term exposure to ambient PM2·5 in China: a cohort study.
Long-term exposure to PM2·5 is associated with an increased risk of all-cause mortality among adults aged 65 years and older in China, but the magnitude of the risk declines as the concentration of PM2 ·5 increases. Expand
Effect Modification of Long‐Term Air Pollution Exposures and the Risk of Incident Cardiovascular Disease in US Women
Women with diabetes were identified as the subpopulation most sensitive to the adverse cardiovascular health effects of PM, and risks were most elevated with exposures in the previous 12 months. Expand
Long-term exposure to air pollution and incidence of cardiovascular events in women.
Long-term exposure to fine particulate air pollution is associated with the incidence of cardiovascular disease and death among postmenopausal women and the between-city effect appeared to be smaller than the within- city effect. Expand
Fine Particulate Air Pollution (PM2.5) and the Risk of Acute Ischemic Stroke
The hypothesis that short-term increases in PM2.5 levels are associated with ischemic stroke risk overall is not supported, however, specific patient subgroups may be at increased risk of particulate-related isChemic strokes. Expand
Particulate Matter Exposures, Mortality, and Cardiovascular Disease in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study
Among this cohort of men with high socioeconomic status living in the midwestern and northeastern United States, the results did not support an association of chronic PM exposures with all-cause mortality and cardiovascular outcomes in models with time-varying covariates. Expand
Cardiovascular Effects of Long‐Term Exposure to Air Pollution: A Population‐Based Study With 900 845 Person‐Years of Follow‐up
It is demonstrated that long‐term exposure to air pollution including PM 2.5 increases the risk of major cardiovascular disease and mortality and air pollution should be considered an important modifiable environmental cardiovascular risk factor. Expand
