Pediatric #Psychiatric Emergency Department Utilization and Fine #Particulate Matter: A Case-Crossover Study

Acute exposure to ambient particulate matter <2.5μm in aerodynamic diameter (PM2.5) has been associated with adult psychiatric exacerbations but has not been studied in children. Results:A 10-μg/m3 increase in PM2.5 was associated with a significant increase in any psychiatric ED utilization 1 [OR=1.07 (95% CI: 1.02, 1.12)] and 2 [OR=1.05 (95% CI: 1.00, 1.10)] d later. When stratified by visit reason, associations were significant for … Continue reading Pediatric #Psychiatric Emergency Department Utilization and Fine #Particulate Matter: A Case-Crossover Study
