Results indicated that 24-hr transition metals and alkanes were associated with increased odds of hospital admissions for cardiovascular disease (CVD); transition metals were significantly associated with increased hospital admissions for ischemic heart disease, congestive heart failure, and atrial fibrillation; increased respiratory-related hospital admissions were significantly associated with exposure to alkanes; and aromatics and microcrystalline oxides were significantly associated with decreased CVD- and respiratory-related hospital admissions.
