Impact of Air Quality on Exacerbations of COPD in the Somme

2017-03-14 20:38:21 | BioPortfolio


All COPD patients with a diagnosis of acute exacerbation in emergency room in University Hospital of Amiens-Picardie between 01/01/2017 and 31/12/2017. We will collect for each patient the home address and the work address. The duration of 1 year was chosen to take into account seasonal variations. In parallel, a daily report of the rate of ozone, particles (PM2.5 and PM10), dioxide nitrogen but also odours and pollens will be done by ATMO Picardie.
