A person will get the maximum health risk with pollution particle of size less than ten micrometers. These particles can reach deep into the lungs. According to the World health organization, these particles can put a person at a higher risk of heart diseases and premature death.
Now a study shows the risk of cardiovascular disease with the tiny particles in the polluted air. The air of a highly polluted area can contain these tiny particles. They reach our blood vessels and the heart after passing through the lungs during inhaling.
A study on the rodents shows that the tiny particles (nanoparticles) can move into the bloodstream from lungs through osmotic action after inhaling. The tiny particles in the bloodstream increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases, heart attack and stroke and sometimes leads to premature death.
Author of the study was Dr. Mark Miller, from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland and the study was published in the journal ACS Nano.
The European researchers have developed the European Association of Preventive Cardiology Exercise Prescription in Everyday Practice and Rehabilitative Training (EXPERT) tool to reduce or prevent the risk of heart disease in people. The tool can help in developing a personalized workout plan with varying intensities and frequencies (based on heart disease risk factors of the patient).
The author says the physical exercise can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, mortality and morbidity and improve the fitness and the body composition. But a number of surveys indicate the difficulties in recommending a specific physical exercise program to a patient of cardiovascular diseases with the multiple risk factors.
The new EXPERT tool will collect the details of the patient such as cardiovascular diseases, risk factors (such as hypertension or blood pressure, diabetes and obesity) and the chronic conditions and then recommend a personalized exercise program and safety precautions. The EXPERT tool was incorporated with international recommendations. The tool can suggest a personalized exercise program to promote optimum results for a patient with heart diseases.
Authors are planning to conduct a clinical trial for the EXPERT tool to assess the effects on the outcome of the patient. The lead author of the study was Professor Dominique Hansen, at Hasselt University, Diepenbeek, Belgium. The study was published on April 19, 2017, in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.
