Air pollution increases both morbidity and mortality in population [1]. Outdoor air pollution is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease throughout the world, with particulate air pollution alone responsible for over three million deaths each year [2, 3]. Increases in concentrations of daily air pollution are associated with acute myocardial infarction [4] and admission to hospital or death from heart failure [5]. These associations could be mediated through the effects of exposure to air pollutants on vascular tone, endothelial function, thrombosis, and myocardial ischaemia [6–9]. Nanomaterials can enter the human body by different ways, such as breathing, eating and skin contact in humans. After absorbed through the lung epithelium, nanomaterials can enter the blood and lymph and bone marrow and arrive to lymph nodes, spleen and heart [10–12] and then affect in coagulation and heart rhythm [13, 14]. Nanoparticles may increase bacterial mutation and have potential menance in environment and human health [15]. Studies showed that nanoparticles like TiO and C caused air pollution, inflammation and skin injury; in addition these nanoparticles accumulate in a lung and caused adverse effect on health [16]. Air pollutants include gaseous pollutants (e.g, carbon mono oxide, ozone, oxides of nitrogen and sulfur dioxide) and particulate matters (PMs). in this review article, we discuss air-polluted particle (include ambient air particles, disel exhaust, ozone
