  1. Winter weather conditions and myocardial infarctions.

    Article - En anglais

    The daily number of cases of myocardial infarctions admitted to a hospital in middle Sweden over three winter seasons 1984-87 was correlated to the weather conditions on a day-to-day basis.

    The study encompassed 634 days and all cases younger than 70 years, living within the catchment area, in all 382 subjects.

    Information on temperature, wind force, precipitation and atmospheric pressure was obtained from the Swedish Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology.

    A low number of myocardial infarctions was seen on Saturdays and Sundays with a mild wind chill factor and on days with moderate snowfall and high atmospheric pressure.
