Mortalité liée à la chaleur au cours de l’été : analyse multi-pays Volume 16, issue 2, March-April 2017



This news is based on the following article: Gasparrini A, Guo Y, Hashizume M, et al. Changes in susceptibility to heat during the summer: a multicountry analysis. Am J Epidemiol 2016 ; 183: 1027-36.doi: 10.1093/aje/kwv260

The results of this large-scale work, based on sophisticated models, provide strong indications that heat-related mortality is attenuated over course of the summer.
