Air pollution and hospital admissions for the elderly in Detroit, Michigan.
Several studies in recent years have suggested that exposure to airborne particles and to ozone are associated with increases in respiratory hospital admissions.
Few of those studies have used inhalable particles as their measure of exposure, and the studies did not always examine both particle and ozone exposure.
This study examined the association between both PM10 and ozone and respiratory hospital admissions for persons 65 yr of age and older in the Detroit, MiChigan, metropolitan area during the years 1986 to 1989.
After controlling for seasonal and other long-term temporal trends, temperature, and dew point temperature, both PM10 (RR=1.012,95% Cl=1.019-1.004) and 24-h ozone concentrations (RR=1.026,95% CI=1.040-1.013) were associated with daily admissions for pneumonia.
