Title: The effect of aircraft noise exposure on blood pressure profile and hypertension-mediated organ damage within heart and large arteries


This study aimed to evaluate the effects of chronic exposure to aircraft noise on blood pressure profile and hypertension-mediated organ damage in the heart and large arteries. A comparison was made between a group of people exposed to high levels of noise in their place of residence (n=101) and a group not exposed to it (n=100). Medical history, anthropometric and socioeconomic data of the participants and information on sleep quality and perceived annoyance of environmental noise were collected. Office measurements and 24-hour blood pressure monitoring, echocardiography and pulse wave analyses were performed. Analyses of the association of aircraft noise exposure with the prevalence of arterial hypertension, values and 24-hour profile of blood pressure, central pressures, pulse wave velocity and echocardiographic indices were conducted. In addition, the associations of the above with sleep quality and noise-induced insomnia and reported annoyance were analysed. In conclusion: long-term exposure to aircraft noise does not significantly increase the prevalence of arterial hypertension, nevertheless it is associated with higher diastolic blood pressure values, more advanced arterial stiffness and worse left ventricular diastolic function; development of arterial stiffness in nonhypertensive individuals exposed to aircraft noise is related to perceived noise annoyance; noct ; urnal aircraft noise is associated with sleep disturbances and elevated diastolic blood pressure, but noise-induced insomnia remains related to elevated systolic blood pressure values.
