Haze Brings Risk of Cardiac Arrest
According to a nationwide study led by SGH, poorer air quality is linked to an increased risk of cardiac arrest occurring outside of hospitals. Researchers found that short to intermediate term risk of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest s increased by up to 30% when PSI level rose into unhealthy range of above 100. The study also revealed that the elevated risk lingered for up to 5 days after a spike in PSI levels.
A/Prof Marcus Ong, Senior Consultant, Dept of Emergency Medicine, SGH and senior author of the study highlighted that the study would bring awareness of the health impact of haze on the population. The study will be presented at the SGH Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM).
