BACKGROUND Few studies have explored the added effect of heat waves, especially in China. Moreover, no prior studies have assessed whether the choice of heat wave definitions affected this added effect. This study compared the associations between heat waves defined by different heat wave definitions (HWs) and cause-specific mortality in warm season in Nanjing, China. METHODS A distributed lag model was applied to evaluate the differences in daily mortality during heat-wave days (defined… CONTINUE READING
