Abstract

This study examined the health impacts of O-3 in Ahvaz (Iran). Ozone data were obtained from the Iranian Environmental Protection Agency and the time series were analyzed while the health end-points from O-3 exposure were calculated using the Air Q model. The time series analysis showed that air pollutants levels were associated with five steps delay of O-3 and zero step delay of moving average ARMA (5, 0). The results of Air Q model revealed cumulative cases of cardiovascular mortality and myocardial infarction related to surface O-3. The number of cases attributable to O-3 exposure for cardiovascular mortality and myocardial infarction were estimated at 182 and 51 people per year, respectively. The finding of this study showed that, the distribution of O-3 data has a correlated structure over time. Ground-level O-3 was found to be positively correlated with an increased risk of cardiovascular mortality and acute myocardial infarction in Ahvaz.
