ABSTRACT

Introduction: Exposure to high consistency of Particulate Matter (PM)
is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. In terms of industrially and
geographically, Ahvaz city is exposed to severe pollution, particularly
by dust. Considering the high prevalence of heart disease in the city,
studying the impact of particulate matter on cardiovascular diseases to
improve public health appears necessary. Materials and Methods:
This retrospective study was done based on hospital records data. The
followings were compared based on PM10: prevalence of risk factors,
demographic findings and cardiovascular events including unstable
pectoral angina, ST-elevation MI, Non ST elevation MI, cardiac
failure, arrhythmia and new cases of arrhythmia, incidence of acute
myocardial infarction and acute cerebral infarction, need for
cardiopulmonary resuscitation, worsening of symptoms, and incidence of cardiac arrest
during dusty and cleared days. Abundance statistical comparison of results was carried out
between contaminated and cleared groups using chi-square test (χ2) by SPSS version 22.
Results: 210 cases of 320 examined cases were related to polluted days and 110 cases were
related to clear days. Statistical analysis of studied cardiac events showed that there is a
significant difference only in occurrence of unstable angina in two groups of clear and polluted (p <0.05). Conclusion: The results of this study showed that exposure to dust can cause to increase the risk of cardiovascular events especially unstable angina.

Keywords: cardiovascular event; unstable pectoral angina; dust; PM10; Ahvaz.
