Long-term exposure to air pollution and incidence of cardiovascular events in t. Delfino RJ, et al. We performed sensitivity analyses using emergency department visits among all ages.

Please review our privacy policy. Accepted 2 February The principal challenge to epidemiological research on traffic lies in exposure characterization. Fifty preterm inborn infants, with low risk for neurological problems, were consecutively enrolled in a non-randomized way, and followed prospectively until independent walking, from June to November Environ Health Perspect ; J Perinat Neonat Nurs ; We chose to group pollutants based claificacion a prior knowledge chemical structure rather than the statistical relationships among them e.

Estimating acute cardiorespiratory effects of ambient volatile organic compounds

The exposure-response curve for ozone and risk of mortality and the adequacy of current ozone regulations. All infants had neurological evaluations performed by one of the authors JLDG at the end of the follow-up period, to assure that none had a major neurological abnormality motor delay, reflex abnormality, muscle tone abnormality, focal neurological signs.

Regardless of the theoretical framework it is unclear to what extent medical factors have negative effects beyond gestational age or to what extent environmental factors accelerate or inhibit the developmental functioning of preterm infants. Table 5 Sensitivity analysis controlling for selected major pollutants one at a time in each VOC indicator pollutant model predicting asthma ED visits among all ages.

Asthma symptoms in Hispanic children and daily ambient exposures to toxic and criteria air pollutants. We used single-pollutant models to estimate the effect of total identified hydrocarbons and total identified oxygenates, as follows:.


AIMS provides an evaluative index scores and percentile rank which measures changes in motor performance over time, before and after intervention and compares them with the norm raw data measures 22, Environmental Protection Agency, Traffic-related air pollution and the onset of myocardial infarction: Nonetheless, even in these countries epidemiological studies continue to link current air pollution levels to risk for adverse health effects, leading to a need for ongoing research to provide evidence for policy formulation.

The effects of fine particle components on respiratory hospital admissions in children. Health Effects Institute, Mental development of preterm infants during the first year. Am J Phys Med Rehabil ; Such potential confounding is of concern for studies on both short- and long-term time frames, except for situations with abrupt changes in exposure —the London fog of representing an extreme example— that decouple potential confounders from exposure.

Our results suggest that, when using AIMS, scores should be corrected for the degree of prematurity to more accurately identify infants with real delay, which is in agreement with AIMS criteria Sensitivity analysis controlling for selected major pollutants one at a time in each VOC indicator pollutant model predicting cardiovascular ED visits among all ages.

Those with lower income are more likely to live near point sources of pollution and busy roadways and consequently to be exposed to higher concentrations than the more affluent. Developmental testing of pre-term and small-for-date infants.

Mean scores were analyzed according to chronological and corrected ages. At thirteen months of age, we observed an overlapping of the confidence intervals suggesting that from that period onwards age correction for the degree of prematurity is no longer necessary see also Tables 2 and 3.

We conclude that full correction of chronological age for the degree of prematurity should be used when assessing preterm infants gross motor development during the first year of corrected age. Associations between outdoor air pollutants and hospitalization for respiratory diseases.

Environ Health Perspect ; Suppl 3: The biological perspective states that development is determined by the maturation of central nervous system, independently of environmental influences For two major air pollutants, particulate matter PM and ozone O3the evidence for diverse outcomes has remained consistent with a linear relationship without threshold, 4, leading to regulatory strategies in the United States that attempt to minimize the burden of pollutant-attributable disease.

Exposure of Humans to a Volatile Organic Mixture. All infants had been assessed by a pediatric neurologist after walk attainment to exclude infants with major neurological signs of cerebral palsy. Research questions have become more subtle and challenging as levels of air pollution have dropped in some countries table I. Initially, we explored the data descriptively to characterize the extent of correlation among the components, given the common sources of many of them.

Health effects of particulate matter, its constituents, and criteria gases have been frequently investigated. Arch Dis Child ; Health effects of organic aerosols. Support Center Support Center. African Americans and Hispanics. Daily concentrations of 89 VOCs were measured at a centrally-located ambient monitoring site in Atlanta and daily counts of emergency department visits for cardiovascular diseases and asthma in the 5-county Atlanta area were obtained for the — period.

Immediate priorities and a long-range research portfolio.

Estimating acute cardiorespiratory effects of ambient volatile organic compounds

The hydrocarbons included in our analysis are primarily emitted from traffic or other combustion sources, while oxygenates such as clasificacio are largely secondary. See other articles in PMC that cite the published article. US Environmental Protection Agency,
