Short-Term Air Pollution as a Risk for Stroke Admission: A Time-Series Analysis.

Colm Patrick Byrne, Kathleen E Bennett, Anne Hickey, Paul Kavanagh, Brian Broderick, Margaret O'Mahony, David J Williams,

BACKGROUND:The harmful effects of outdoor air pollution on stroke incidence are becoming increasingly recognised. We examined the impact of different air pollutants (PM2.5, PM10, NO2, ozone, and SO2) on admission for all strokes in two Irish urban centres from 2013 to 2017. METHODS:Using an ecological time series design with Poisson ... Read more >>

Local NO2 concentrations and asthma among over-50s in Ireland: A microdata analysis.

Philip Carthy, Aonghus Ó Domhnaill, Margaret O'Mahony, Anne Nolan, Frank Moriarty, Brian Broderick, Martina Hennessy, Aoife Donnelly, Owen Naughton, Sean Lyons,

BACKGROUND:Links between air pollution and asthma are less well established for older adults than some younger groups. Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) concentrations are widely used as an indicator of transport-related air pollution, and some literature suggests NO2 may directly affect asthma. METHODS:This study used data on 8162 adults >50 years old in ... Read more >>

Maximizing the spatial representativeness of NO2 monitoring data using a combination of local wind-based sectoral division and seasonal and diurnal correction factors.

Aoife Donnelly, Owen Naughton, Bruce Misstear, Brian Broderick,

This article describes a new methodology for increasing the spatial representativeness of individual monitoring sites. Air pollution levels at a given point are influenced by emission sources in the immediate vicinity. Since emission sources are rarely uniformly distributed around a site, concentration levels will inevitably be most affected by the ... Read more >>

Application of nonparametric regression methods to study the relationship between NO2 concentrations and local wind direction and speed at background sites.

Aoife Donnelly, Bruce Misstear, Brian Broderick,

Background concentrations of nitrogen dioxide (NO(2)) are not constant but vary temporally and spatially. The current paper presents a powerful tool for the quantification of the effects of wind direction and wind speed on background NO(2) concentrations, particularly in cases where monitoring data are limited. In contrast to previous studies ... Read more >>

Optimal cycling and walking speed for minimum absorption of traffic emissions in the lungs.

Aonghus McNabola, Brian M Broderick, Laurence W Gill,

This study investigated whether, over a number of fixed distances and under a number of different exposure concentrations, the cyclist will adsorb less benzene by cycling/walking slowly with a relatively low breathing rate or by cycling/walking as fast as reasonably possible with a relatively high breathing rate. Breathing rates were ... Read more >>

Effects of the smoking ban on benzene and 1,3-butadiene levels in pubs in Dublin.

Aonghus McNabola, Brian Broderick, Paul Johnston, Laurence Gill,

According to World Health Organisation figures, 30% of all cancer deaths, 20% of all coronary heart diseases and strokes and 80% of all chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are caused by cigarette smoking. In accordance with the recommendations of the Tobacco Free Policy Review Group Report the Irish government has introduced ... Read more >>
