AbstractBackground Ambient air pollution is a complex mixture of particles and gaseous pollutants. Epidemiological studies are moving toward a multipollutant approach, requiring an understanding of possible interactions among the pollutants. We aim to estimate the joint effects of particles with an aerodynamic diameter less than 10 μm (PM10) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) on emergency hospital admissions for cardiac diseases, and to explore the possible interactions between PM10 and NO2. Methods We collected daily time series data from 1998 to 2007 on emergency hospital admissions for cardiac diseases in Hong Kong, as well as PM 10 and NO2 concentrations. Generalized additive Poisson model was used to examine the relationship between air pollution and hospital admissions. We then used three parallel time series approaches (bivariate response surface model, joint effect model and parametric stratified model) to explore the possible interactions between PM10 and NO2. Results Results showed the greatest joint effect of PM10 and NO 2 on emergency cardiac hospitalizations when PM10 and NO2 concentrations were both at high levels. The effect of PM 10 was significantly greatest on the days with high NO2 level, and vice versa. A 10 μg/m3 increase of lag0 PM10 and NO2 was associated with an increase of emergency cardiac hospitalizations by 0.55% (95% CI: 0.29-0.80%) and 1.20% (95% CI: 0.87-1.53%) respectively, when the other pollutant was at high level. Conclusions We found consistent synergistic interaction between PM10 and NO2 on emergency cardiac hospitalizations in Hong Kong. These findings contribute to the development of a new paradigm for multipollutant air quality management. © 2013 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
