ERF for short term PM10 exposure and respiratory hospital admissions
|Moderator:Virpi Kollanus (see all)|
Exposure-response function for short-term (acute) exposure to ambient air particulate matter (PM) with an aerodynamic diameter < 10 µm and hospital admissions due to respiratory causes.
Dimensions and boundaries relevant for the variable
- Respiratory diseases included
- ICD 460-519
- Age of exposed population
- Country/other geographic area
WHO task group (2004) 
- 0.7% (95% Cl 0.2%, 1.3%) increase in respiratory hospital admissions per 10 µg/m3 PM10 in age group 65+
APHEIS study of European cities
- 1.14% (95% Cl 0.62%, 1.67%) increase in respiratory hospital admissions per 10 µg/m3 PM10 in all ages
Relative risk (RR) per 10 µg/m3 increase in exposure
|Age group||RR||95% Cl|
|All ages||1.0114||1.0062, 1.0167|
