Association Between Particulate Air Pollution and QT Interval Duration in an Elderly Cohort( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Background: Short-term fine particulate matter (PM2.5) exposure has been linked with increased QT interval duration, a marker of ventricular repolarization and a risk factor for cardiac arrhythmia and sudden death, in several studies. Only one previous study evaluated whether long-term PM exposure is related to the QT interval. We aim to evaluate whether subchronic and long-term exposure to PM2.5 at home is linked with QT duration in an elderly cohort. Methods: We measured heart-rate corrected QT interval duration among 404 participants from the Greater Boston area between 2003 and 2011. We modeled residential PM2.5 exposures using a hybrid satellite- and land use-based model. We evaluated associations between moving averages of short-term (1-2 days), subchronic (3-28 days), and long-term (1 year) pollutant exposures and corrected QT duration using linear mixed models. We also evaluated effect modification by oxidative stress genetic score using separated regression models and interaction terms. Results: We observed positive associations between subchronic and long-term PM2.5 exposure and corrected QT duration, with the strongest results for longer-term exposures. For example, a one standard deviation increase in 1-year PM2.5 was associated with a 6.3 ms increase in corrected QT (95% confidence interval: 1.8, 11). We observed somewhat greater effects among subjects with higher (8.5 ms) rather than lower (3.1 ms) oxidative stress allelic profiles (P interaction = 0.25). Conclusions: PM2.5 was associated with increased corrected QT duration in an elderly cohort. While most previous studies focused on short-term air pollution exposures, our results suggest that longer-term exposures are associated with cardiac repolarization.

Effect of daily temperature range on respiratory health in Argentina and its modification by impaired socio-economic conditions and PM10 exposures( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Epidemiological investigations regarding temperature influence on human health have focused on mortality rather than morbidity. In addition, most information comes from developed countries despite the increasing evidence that climate change will have devastating impacts on disadvantaged populations living in developing countries. In the present study, we assessed the impact of daily temperature range on upper and lower respiratory infections in Cordoba, Argentina, and explored the effect modification of socio-economic factors and influence of airborne particles We found that temperature range is a strong risk factor for admissions due to both upper and lower respiratory infections, particularly in elderly individuals, and that these effects are more pronounced in sub-populations with low education level or in poor living conditions. These results indicate that socio-economic factors are strong modifiers of the association between temperature variability and respiratory morbidity, thus they should be considered in risk assessments. Highlights: Daily temperature range is a strong risk factor for respiratory infections. Low education level and poor living conditions are strong modifiers of this relationship. In Cordoba city higher risk for respiratory infections were observed during summertime. Abstract : Daily temperature range is a strong risk factor for respiratory infections, particularly for populations with low educational level or poor living conditions
