Abstract

A retrospective analysis of the calls received by the emergency services in Montluçon and the outpatient dossiers in the Adult and Pediatric Emergency Departments for June 3 to 5, 2000 evidenced an increase in the number of requests made for assistance regarding pollinosis symptoms. These symptoms and the associated requests for assistance seem to have been caused by Poaceae pollen peaks, ozone peaks and specific weather conditions. Hence, the number of calls received by the emergency services can be viewed as an unfavorable indicator for pollen-related diseases.
