OBJECTIVE. The aim was to investigate the link between air temperature and number of deaths in all 47 prefectures of Japan. Method. The parameters of air temperature from January 2005 to December 2014 were obtained from the Japan Meteorological Agency, Japan. We also obtained the number of deaths and population data for the study period from each prefectural government. The effect of air temperature on the number of deaths was evaluated by ecological analysis. Results. The number of deaths were… Expand

Relationship between Air Temperature Parameters and the Number of Deaths Stratified by Cause in Gifu Prefecture, Japan
Lower air temperature may be associated with a higher number of deaths due to diseases in Gifu prefecture, Japan. Expand
Prediction Model of Deep Learning for Ambulance Transports in Kesennuma City by Meteorological Data
The deep learning framework could statistically make polynomial curves between the meteorological variables and the number of ambulance transport and the DL-based prediction for daily ambulance transports would be used in the future, leading to solving the lack of medical resources in Japan. Expand

[Relationship between daily high temperature and mortality in Kyushu, Japan].
The V-shape was observed even in 1990, suggesting that the rapid spread of air conditioners did not alter the relationship between daily high temperature and mortality rate, and the overall mortality rates rose with age, with greater increases at lower ambient temperature levels. Expand
Changes in Air Temperature and Its Relation to Ambulance Transports Due to Heat Stroke in All 47 Prefectures of Japan
The highest air temperature was significantly linked to ambulance transports due to heat stroke, especially in elderly subjects, and global warming was demonstrated in all 47 prefectures in Japan. Expand

The linkage among ambulance transports, death and climate parameters in Asahikawa City, Japan
A weak linkage among climate parameters, total ambulance transports and the number of deaths was noted in Asahikawa City, Japan, however, these associations were not as high as expected. Expand
Excess Winter Mortality and Cold Temperatures in a Subtropical City, Guangzhou, China
The role of cold temperature on the winter mortality even in warm climate is highlighted and precautionary measures should be strengthened to mitigate cold-related mortality for people living in warmClimate. Expand
The association of cold weather and all-cause and cause-specific mortality in the island of Ireland between 1984 and 2007
The study findings indicated strong cold weather-mortality associations in the island of Ireland; these effects were less persistent, and for CVD mortality, smaller in NI than in the ROI, and require further exploration. Expand
Determination of optimum daily maximum temperature using climate data
It is considered that a daily maximum temperature between Tmax80 and Tmax85 is the best climate index for estimating OT in Japan, and Okinawa’s being an outlier is desirable because the capacity to accommodate a different type of climate may expand the applicability of OT estimation method to wider regions in the world.

The finding that 57% of "unexplained" cold-related mortality and 26% of the "un Explained" heat- related mortality was attributable to cardiovascular diseases suggests that direct effects are only in part the result of increased stress on the circulatory system. Expand
