Fine airborne particulate matter less than 2.5 microns in diameter (PM2.5) is associated with higher risk of cardiovascular events and other chronic conditions, even at short-term exposure. This review provides health care teams with information about the evidence on particle pollution exposure’s impact on health and how to identify at-risk patients in order to reduce their air pollution exposure to lower cardiovascular risk.
