Air pollution is the result of the emission of chemicals, particulate matter, and biologic material into the atmosphere then caused adverse effect on environment and health. Major air pollutants that threatening human health are carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, ozone, chemical vapors, and particulate matter. Air pollution is an important risk factor for cardiovascular health, therefore In this review article, we discuss air-polluted particle and the adverse effects of them on cardiovascular disease. Introduction: With advances in technology, air pollution has also increased. Air pollution caused mortality and cardiovascular disease in population [1-3]. Studies showed that increased the daily air pollution concentrations associated with myocardial infarction [4] and heart failure [5]. Air pollutants caused adverse effect on vascular tone, endothelial function, thrombosis, and myocardial ischaemia [6–9]. Nanomaterials could enter the blood, lymph, and bone marrow and arrived to lymph nodes, spleen and heart [10–12] and then affected in coagulation and heart rhythm [13, 14]. Studies showed that nanoparticles like TiO and C caused air pollution, inflammation, skin injury, and lung accumulation [15]. 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 and carbon monoxide)
