Resumo: Direct effects of ambient temperature on human health are known and, specifically for high temperatures, can range from moderate skin irritations to the so-called heat stroke. Excess temperature can also have adverse effects on health by aggravating preexisting diseases such as cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, respiratory diseases, diabetes, among others1-2. In Portugal, similarly to other countries, the effects of excess heat on health are known, specifically on mortality, in situations of sudden and intense temperature increase, i.e. during the so-called heat waves2-7. The objective of this work was to evaluate, in mainland Portugal districts, the extreme temperature effects on mortality on summer of 2013.
