Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] ATMOSPHERIC PARTICULATE AND SNORING: THE "OSAS" CASE STUDY IN THE URBAN AREA OF ROME Abstracts: This study focuses on the possible relationships between concentrations of atmospheric particulate matter and a minor respiratory pathology, the Snoring (phenomenon related to resistance to flow air in the upper airways), which is not yet included in the burden of health estimates related to air pollution. The "OSAS" study was conducted by the Gemelli General Hospital on over 350 patients living in the urban area of Rome. Each patient underwent cardiorespiratory polygraphy, performed at home from 2008 to 2013, from which five quantitative variables were derived. In addition, information was collected for each patient regarding certain risk factors, such as smoking or obesity. These data were analyzed with the PCA to derive the correlation structure. At the same time, PM10 hourly concentration data were analyzed in eleven stations of the air quality monitoring network of the city of Rome, from 2008 to 2011. Through cluster analysis, homogeneous subgroups of stations were identified based on the levels of particulate matter observed over several years. Finally, each patient, based on his residence in the last 10 years, was associated with one of the monitoring stations, so as to be able to compare the results of the analysis of the two data sets and verify the existence of possible links. The first results obtained were significant. For the future it is planned to carry out an analysis of the habits of patients and of the places where they reside or work. Furthermore, the concentrations of PM2.5 and PM1, on which the attention of the international scientific community is more focused and for which the links with respiratory pathologies can be particularly interesting as a vehicle of the most toxic substances for health, will also have to be analyzed.
