Another study, covering the period 1996–2002, on the short-term exposure to air pollutants, particularly NO2, CO, and PM10, ICR, found a direct correlation with the increase in daily mortality for all causes of death, cardiorespiratory mortality, and hospital admissions for heart and respiratory diseases. The same study found a strong correlation between pollutants, mortality, and hospital admissions in the summer, without finding differences or significant changes in children (0–24 months) and the elderly (> 85 years).
