OBJECTIVES To investigate the association between air pollution and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) incidence in Singapore. DESIGN A time-stratified case-crossover design study. SETTING OHCA incidences of all etiology in Singapore. PARTICIPANTS 8589 OHCA incidences reported to Pan-Asian Resuscitation Outcomes Study (PAROS) registry in Singapore between 2010 and 2015. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES A conditional Poisson regression model was applied to daily OHCA incidence that included… 
Time‐Stratified Case Crossover Study of the Association of Outdoor Ambient Air Pollution With the Risk of Acute Myocardial Infarction in the Context of Seasonal Exposure to the Southeast Asian Haze Problem
TLDR
An effect of short‐term air pollution on AMI incidence, especially non–ST‐segment–elevation myocardial infarction and inpatient AMI, is found, which has public health implications for primary prevention and emergency health services during haze.
Association of ambient air pollution with risk of hemorrhagic stroke: A time-stratified case crossover analysis of the Singapore stroke registry.
TLDR
Short-term exposure to ambient CO levels was associated with an increased risk of HS, and a reduction in CO emissions may reduce the burden of HS in the population.

  • 2019
Ambient air pollution is a risk factor for both acute and chronic diseases and poses serious health threats to the world population. We aim to study the relationship between air pollution and
Effect of meteorological factors and air pollutants on out-of-hospital cardiac arrests: a time series analysis
TLDR
Average temperature, daily temperature range and humidity were independently associated with OHCA occurrence in a season-dependent manner and PM2.5 was the only independent risk factor forOHCA occurrence irrespective of seasonal changes.

TLDR
Investigation of the impact of air pollution on nation-wide emergency department (ED) visits and hospital admissions to public hospitals in Singapore found increased PSI was not associated with increase in total ED visits andospital admissions, but was associated with increased ED visitsand hospital admissions for respiratory conditions in Singapore.
Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and ambient air pollution: A dose-effect relationship and an association with OHCA incidence
TLDR
The link between pollutants and the acute risk of cardiac arrest is clarified suggesting the need of both improving the air quality and integrating pollution data in future models for the organization of emergency medical services.
Out‐of‐Hospital Cardiac Arrests and Wildfire‐Related Particulate Matter During 2015–2017 California Wildfires
TLDR
Out‐of‐hospital cardiac arrests increased with wildfire smoke exposure, and lower socioeconomic status appeared to increase the risk, according to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Association's Hazard Mapping System.
Impact of bystander-focused public health interventions on cardiopulmonary resuscitation and survival: a cohort study.
TLDR
National bystander-focused public health interventions in Singapore were associated with an increased likelihood of bystander CPR, and an increased survival to hospital discharge.
Linking air quality, health, and economic effect models for use in air pollution epidemiology studies with uncertain factors
Abstract Epidemiological studies have shown that premature mortality, hospital admission, and outpatient visits are closely related to particulate matter (PM) pollution. The modelling of air quality,
Artificial intelligence-assisted analysis on the association between exposure to ambient fine particulate matter and incidence of arrhythmias in outpatients of Shanghai community hospitals.
TLDR
Ambient exposure to fine particulate matter is linked with increased risk of arrhythias in outpatients visiting Shanghai community hospitals, with an immediate or lag effect, and the arrhythmogenic effect varies among different types of cardiac arrh rhythmias.

TLDR
The findings confirm the link between OHCA and fine particulate matter and introduce evidence of a similar link with ozone.

TLDR
The current evidence confirmed the associations between short-term exposure to PM2.5, PM10 and O3 and a high risk of OHCA, with the strongest association being observed for PM2-5.5.
A Case-Crossover Analysis of Particulate Matter Air Pollution and Out-of-Hospital Primary Cardiac Arrest
TLDR
Findings do no support an association between particulate matter and increased risk of primary cardiac arrest among persons without clinically recognized heart disease and the relatively low particulate Matter levels in the Seattle metropolitan area.
Forest Fire Smoke Exposures and Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrests in Melbourne, Australia: A Case-Crossover Study
TLDR
This study found an association between exposure to forest fire smoke and an increase in the rate of OHCA, and these findings have implications for public health messages to raise community awareness and for planning of emergency services during forest fire seasons.
Short-term effects of air pollution on out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in Stockholm.
TLDR
Short-term exposure to moderate levels of O3 is associated with an increased risk of OHCA and no effects for other pollutants and no effect modification by age, gender, or season.
A case-crossover analysis of out-of-hospital coronary deaths and air pollution in Rome, Italy.
TLDR
Air pollutants originating from combustion processes, including ultrafine particles, are related to fatal, nonhospitalized coronary events and the effect is stronger among people over 65 years of age, but is not limited to a group with a specific comorbidity.
Air pollution and activation of mobile medical team for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
TLDR
An association was found between air pollution and MICU activation for OHCA (ozone and PM2.5) and no link was found with PM of median aerodynamic diameter less than 10 μm.

TLDR
Decreased air pollution from ambient biomass smoke was associated with reduced annual mortality in males and with reduced cardiovascular and respiratory mortality during winter months and there were no significant changes in mortality in the control city of Hobart.
Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest and Airborne Fine Particulate Matter: A Case–Crossover Analysis of Emergency Medical Services Data in Indianapolis, Indiana
TLDR
An acute effect of short-term PM2.5 exposure in precipitating OHCAs is suggested, and a need to investigate further the role of subject factors in the effects of PM on the risk of OHCA.
Ozone and cardiovascular injury
TLDR
The epidemiological, clinical and experimental evidence of the effects of ozone on cardiovascular diseases, including the correlation between ozone level and occurrence of acute myocardial infarction, is explored.
