                         pollutants on the increase of hospitalizations due to 
                         cardiovascular diseases. This was an ecological study conducted in 
                         the city of Sao Jose do Rio Preto, Sao Paulo, Brazil, with data 
                         from hospital admissions with diagnoses in the categories of I-00 
                         to I-99, from October, 1, 2011, to September 30, 2012. 
                         Fineparticulate matter (PM2,5), ozone, carbon monoxide, nitrogen 
                         oxide and nitrogen dioxide were the pollutants studied; they were 
                         estimated by CATT-BRAMs model. The use of an additive Poisson 
                         regression model showed association between exposure to PM2,5 and 
                         hospital admission due to cardiovascular diseases. In the fifth 
                         day after exposure to this pollutant (lag 5), the relative risk 
                         for hospitalization due to cardiovascular diseases increased 15 
                         percent in according to 10 mu g/m(3) increase on PM2,5 
                         concentrations. There were 650 avoidable hospital admissions and 
                         an excess of R\$ 1.9 million in hospital expenses. Thus, it was 
                         possible to identify the association between exposure to PM2,5 and 
                         hospital admission due cardiovascular diseases in medium-sized 
                         cities, like Sao Jose do Rio Preto.",
