  1. Chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and low-level air pollution in Helsinki, 1987-1989.

    Article - En anglais

    The effects of low levels of air pollution and weather conditions on the number of patients admitted to hospitals for exacerbation of chronic bronchitis or emphysema (n=2807) was studied in Helsinki during a 3-year period, 1987-1989.

    The daily number of admissions via the emergency room was significantly associated with prevailing levels of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in Poisson regressions controlled for weather, season, time trends, and day of the week, whereas the total number of admissions (via the emergency room and otherwise) was not significantly associated with these pollutants.
