Increased Risk of Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation Episodes Associated with Acute Increases in Ambient Air Pollution
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2006)
Objectives: We reported previously that 24-hr moving average ambient air pollution concentrations were positively associated with ventricular arrhythmias detected by implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). ICDs ...
Prenatal Air Pollution Exposure and Newborn Blood Pressure
Background: Air pollution exposure has been associated with increased blood pressure in adults. Objective: We examined associations of antenatal exposure to ambient air pollution with newborn systolic blood pressure (SBP). ...
Short-Term Changes in Ambient Temperature and Risk of Ischemic Stroke
(S. Karger AG, 2014)
Background: Despite consistent evidence of a higher short-term risk of cardiovascular mortality associated with ambient temperature, there have been discrepant findings on the association between temperature and ischemic ...
Opposing Effects of Particle Pollution, Ozone, and Ambient Temperature on Arterial Blood Pressure
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2012)
Background: Diabetes increases the risk of hypertension and orthostatic hypotension and raises the risk of cardiovascular death during heat waves and high pollution episodes. Objective: We examined whether short-term ...
Brachial Artery Responses to Ambient Pollution, Temperature, and Humidity in People with Type 2 Diabetes: A Repeated-Measures Study
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2014)
Background: Extreme weather and air pollution are associated with increased cardiovascular risk in people with diabetes. Objectives: In a population with diabetes, we conducted a novel assessment of vascular brachial artery ...
Short‐Term Exposure to Air Pollution and Biomarkers of Oxidative Stress: The Framingham Heart Study
(John Wiley and Sons Inc., 2016)
Background: Short‐term exposure to elevated air pollution has been associated with higher risk of acute cardiovascular diseases, with systemic oxidative stress induced by air pollution hypothesized as an important underlying ...
