BACKGROUND The link between concentrations of particulate matter (PM) and respiratory morbidity has been investigated in numerous studies. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to analyze the role of different particle size fractions with respect to respiratory health in Beijing, China. METHODS Data on particle size distributions from 3 nm to 1 µm; PM10 (PM ≤ 10 µm), nitrogen dioxide (NO(2)), and sulfur dioxide concentrations; and meteorologic variables were collected daily from March 2004… CONTINUE READING
