Impact of Air Pollution on the Autonomic Nervous System Activity and the Presence of Sleep Apnea in Older Subjects

2014-08-27 03:16:53 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Impact of air pollution on the autonomic nervous system activity and presence of sleep apnea in older subjects.

Description

The relation between the air pollution and morbidity, cardiovascular mortality was increasing interest. Analyses show an increase of respiratory difficulty, but also cardiac deaths in the daytime when the atmospheric pollution was increased. It was demonstrated that health effects of ambient air pollution in subjects presenting cardiac or lung difficulty were important. Mechanisms show a possible relation to autonomic nervous system (ANS) deactivation and mortality. Particularly, the ageing and ANS reach would be more predictive of cardiovascular events. Thus, we suggest estimating in 60 healthy volunteers from 60 to 80 years old, the impact of the air pollution on the autonomic nervous system activity and sleep apnea consequences.

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.

Governmental guidelines and objectives pertaining to public food supply and nutrition including recommendations for healthy diet and changes in food habits to ensure healthy diet.

Hospital or other institutional ethics committees established to consider the ethical dimensions of patient care. Distinguish from ETHICS COMMITTEES, RESEARCH, which are established to monitor the welfare of patients or healthy volunteers participating in research studies.

Human experimentation that is not intended to benefit the subjects on whom it is performed. Phase I drug studies (CLINICAL TRIALS, PHASE I AS TOPIC) and research involving healthy volunteers are examples of nontherapeutic human experimentation.
