Respiratory hospital admissions and summertime haze air pollution in Toronto, Ontario : consideration of the role of acid aerosols.
A study of air pollution and daily hospital admissions for respiratory causes was conducted in Toronto, Ontario.
Fine aerosol (da<2.5 mum) samples were collected daily at a central city site during July and August 1986,1987, and 1988 and were subsequently extracted and analyzed for daily particulate phase aerosol strong acidity (H+) and sulfates (SO4=). Daily counts of respiratory admissions to 22 acute care hospitals and daily meteorological and environmental data (e.g. ozone [O3], total suspended particulate matter [TSP], and thoracic particle mass [PM10] were also obtained.
