Members of the Clean Air Board of Central Pennsylvania weren’t surprised by a recent study conducted in the area by Penn State researchers.
Penn State College of Medicine researchers found that exposure to high levels of PM2.5 increases stress on the heart’s regulation capacity well after the pollutants had been inhaled.
“It’s certainly a concern,” Duane Fickeisen, treasurer of the CAB.
But, he added, the findings were what he expected.
Stress on the heart from exposure to high levels of PM2.5 may contribute to cardiovascular disease, said Duanping Liao, professor of public health sciences at Penn State, in a news release from the school.
In June, Liao will present his findings during a CAB meeting, said Thomas Au, president of the Carlisle-based group.
Liao’s team of researchers studied 106 people from central Pennsylvania, mostly in the Harrisburg metropolitan area. Nonsmokers over the age of 45 without severe cardiac problems wore air-quality and heart-rate monitors for 24 hours. The devices recorded data in one-minute intervals, the news release says.
