BACKGROUND Many studies report significant associations between PM(2.5) (particulate matter <2.5 micrometers) and hospital admissions. These studies mostly rely on a limited number of monitors which introduces exposure error, and excludes rural and suburban populations from locations where monitors are not available, reducing generalizability and potentially creating selection bias. METHODS Using prediction models developed by our group, daily PM(2.5) exposure was estimated across the Mid… CONTINUE READING
