Publication date: Available online 11 December 2017 Source:Environmental Toxicology and Pharmacology Author(s): P. Chhay, M. Murphy-Marion, Y. Samson, D. Girard Palladium (Pd) is known to be released into the environment in the fine and ultrafine (at the nanoscale) airborne particle fractions mainly from automobile catalytic converters leading to an increase human exposure to this noble metal. It was reported that Pd can induce allergic reactions in individuals exposed to it via different ways. Some studies reported an increased number of eosinophils into airways following NP exposure in vivo in rodent models of allergies...

Asthma triggers that can cause exacerbation despite body weight were not included. We included only frequency of ED visits and hospitalization, which may be inadequate to measure asthma severity.

Results indicate that 64.3% of asthmatics report one or more types of adverse health effects from fragranced products, includi ng respiratory problems (43.3%), migraine headaches (28.2%), and asthma attacks (27.9%).

Abstract BackgroundPrevious studies examining high‐frequency emergency department (ED) utilization have primarily used single‐center data, potentially leading to ascertainment bias if patients visit multiple centers. The goals of this study were 1) to create a predictive model to prospectively identify patients at risk of high‐frequency ED utilization for asthma and 2) to examine how that model differed using statewide versus single‐center data. MethodsTo track ED visits within a state, we analyzed 2011 to 2013 data from the New York State Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project State Emergency Department Databases...
