BACKGROUND Acute exposure to ambient air pollution has been associated with acute changes in cardiac outcomes, often within hours of exposure. OBJECTIVES We examined the effects of air pollutants on heart-rate-corrected QT interval (QTc), an electrocardiographic marker of ventricular repolarization, and whether these associations were modified by participant characteristics and genetic polymorphisms related to oxidative stress. METHODS We studied repeated measurements of QTc on 580 men from… CONTINUE READING
