BackgroundFew data on the relationship between temperature variability and childhood pneumonia are available. This study attempted to fill this knowledge gap.MethodsA quasi-Poisson generalized linear regression model combined with a distributed lag non-linear model was used to quantify the impacts of diurnal temperature range (DTR) and temperature change between two neighbouring days (TCN) on emergency department visits (EDVs) for childhood pneumonia in Brisbane, from 2001 to 2010, after… CONTINUE READING
