Abstract: This study analyzed the association between air pollution and deaths from respiratory diseases, considering differential susceptibility according to gender. The authors used daily deaths from respiratory diseases (ICD-10, J00-J99), PM10, SO2, and O3 levels, and meteorological indicators in Volta Redonda, Rio de Janeiro State, Brazil, from January 2002 to December 2006. The association was estimated by Poisson regression using generalized additive models, where the increase in risk of deaths from PM10 to lag 1 … Show more

“…There were 88 non-consecutive missing data entries for SO 2 (17.5 %) six missing data entries for PM 10 3 . Table 2 shows the relative risk and 95% confidence interval obtained by coefficients of Poisson regression, with the single pollutant model and the multi-pollutant model, on the same day (lag 0), with a lag of one day (lag 1) and a lag of two-days (lag 2).…”

“…Air pollution is associated different health outcomes and increased daily air pollution levels, especially in more susceptible population groups like children, elderly, and individuals with cardio respiratory diseases [1,2,3].In studies realized in London, was found [4] an association between PM10 and the increase in cardiovascular deaths and admissions of 2.2% (95% CI = 0.6-3.8%) and 0.6% (95% CI = 0.4-1.7%), respectively. Cities with a high degree of industrialization, including steel producing plant, intense vehicular flow and rail way transport of ores in the central region, as Volta Redonda city, in Brazil, demonstrate a significant degree of environmental vulnerability and health risk of the local population.…”

“…Others studies published on cardiovascular [1] and respiratory diseases [2,3] point out that Volta Redonda city has a high population health risk due to the atmospheric pollutants emissions. In study [1] aimed to evaluate the effects of air pollution on deaths from cardiovascular diseases, the results showed an increase risk of death for an increase of 10µg/m 3 of PM 10 at lag 2 of 3.67% (95%CI: 0.20 -7.26%) in the total population and 5.23% (95%CI: 0.85 -9.81%) for the elderly, respectively [1].…”
