Does night-time aircraft noise trigger mortality? A case-crossover study on 24,886 cardiovascular deaths

In this Swiss case-crossover study, Saucy et al. investigate the potential acute effects of aircraft noise on mortality and the specific role of different night-time exposure windows.

Findings suggest that night-time aircraft noise can trigger acute cardiovascular mortality. The association was similar to that previously observed for long-term aircraft noise exposure.
