People training for the Half Marathon are at risk of acute cardiovascular events
Dr KK Aggarwal
The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has called for the immediate cancellation of the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon to be held on Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 7.00 a.m. because of the prevailing ‘very poor’ to ‘severe’ air quality in the Delhi-NCR region. The AQI in many areas in the national capital has crossed 999. This is a public health emergency.
Runners or those who exercise outdoors in conditions of air pollution are especially at a greater risk of inhaling toxic air pollutants.
Some physiological changes that occur during exercise may aggravate the harmful effects of air pollution on health. Breathing becomes faster and deeper during exercise or running. The increased respiratory minute ventilation means people inhale more of toxic pollutants. Changeover to mouth breathing from nasal breathing means the nasal filtration mechanism is bypassed.
