Special Issue "Impacts of Indoor Air Pollution on Cardiopulmonary System"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2019.
Indoor air pollution is a high-priority risk across the world. The leading health outcome attributed to indoor air pollution is cardiovascular disease. The World Health Organization has announced that 3.8 million deaths worldwide in 2016 were linked to household/indoor air pollution exposure. Approximately 60 percent of household/indoor air pollution deaths are due to cardiovascular diseases, including stroke and ischaemic heart disease. However, studies of the association between indoor air pollution and cardiovascular effects, indoor air quality improvement and cardiovascular health promotion, etc., are still limited. Moreover, the mechanism linking indoor air pollution to cardiovascular effects is still largely unclear. Therefore, we invite you to consider submitting your research for publication in this Special Issue of the journal, focusing on the “Impacts of Indoor Air Pollution on the Cardiopulmonary System”. The aim of this Special Issue is to communicate a selection of papers on measurement, prevention and interventions regarding cardiovascular effects induced by indoor air pollution in human subjects. In vitro and in vivo studies are also very welcome.
