Brief description This project investigates whether the air pollution that was caused by the 2006-2007 Victorian bushfires, had an effect on the health of people living in Melbourne. Cardiovascular effects will be studied by looking at hospital admissions, out-of-hospital heart attacks and the associated death toll. As it is the expectation that bushfires will increase in the future it is important to determine the impact this may have. This research will inform appropriate public health strategies.
