Reduction in Heart Rate Variability with Traffic and Air Pollution in Patients with Coronary Artery Disease
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2009)
Introduction: Ambient particulate pollution and traffic have been linked to myocardial infarction and cardiac death risk. Possible mechanisms include autonomic cardiac dysfunction. Methods: In a repeated-measures study of ...
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 ...
Air Pollution and ST-Segment Depression in Elderly Subjects
(National Institue of Environmental Health Sciences, 2005)
Increased levels of daily ambient particle pollution have been associated with increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity. Black carbon (BC) is a measure of the traffic-related component of particles. We investigated ...
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 ...
