Part of results of collaborative studies for revealing an influence of the periodical changes of solar, geomagnetic and cosmic ray activities on the sudden cardiac death (SCD) mortality is described in this paper. The data covering daily and monthly temporal distribution of SCD (788 patients in 36 months in 2003-2005), taken from all of emergency and first(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to check for possible links between mortality statistics in a given month, generally from all causes and specifically from selected causes, and three kinds of cosmophysical activity: solar (SA), geomagnetic (GMA), and cosmic ray (CR). We also compared the results obtained for correlation by gender. MATERIAL/METHODS(More)
UNLABELLED Homicide and suicide are extremes in human behavior. The aim of this study is to investigate the connection by time between suicide and homicide, between them and other fatalities, and their links with the level of cosmophysical activity. METHODS Using the national database of Lithuania (1990-2002) we found that 547,875 deaths, 4,638 homicides(More)
Recent studies have shown that (1) monthly neutron activity (NA) (imp/min) correlates with monthly number of acute myocardial infarction (AMI); (2) NA is higher on days of automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillators (AICD) discharges for VT, VF. Here we checked the level of NA in relation to timing and type of sudden cardiac death (SCD) patients(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was (1) to examine the relation between the monthly rate of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and three cosmophysical activity parameters: solar activity (SA), geomagnetic activity (GMA), and cosmic rays activity (CRA) levels; (2) to study whether different subtypes of AMI: ST-elevation MI (STEMI), non-ST-elevation (NSTEMI),(More)
AIM To determine if complicated acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is related to specific cosmophysical activities. METHODS The study group included 1170 patients who had undergone primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for AMI in 2000-2006. Geomagnetic and cosmic ray (neutron) activity (GMA, CRA) on the day of PCI were derived from international(More)
UNLABELLED Recent studies have reported links between external physical factors and human homeostasis. OBJECTIVE to determine whether the monthly values of specific physical environmental factors are associated with the monthly number of preterm births in a major medical center in Israel. METHODS The sample included 1006 infants weighing less than 1500g(More)
In recent studies it was shown that blood coagulation and inflammation markers are raising at high geomagnetic activity; acute myocardial infarction and all his subtypes, mostly related to atheromatous plaque disruption with higher Cosmic Ray (Neutron) activity. The aim of this study was to explore AMI and ICS differences by concomitant physical conditions,(More)
Environmental physical activity (EPA) is considered as one of main regulators of human homeostasis. Evidence is growing that components of this activity through the "human factor" (i.e., changing human physiological and psychological status) can affect the dynamics of traffic accidents (TA)-the modern life epidemic. This paper presents results of studies(More)
We studied the relation between the intensity of cosmic rays, the level of solar/geomagnetic activity, and the monthly numbers of deaths in a large hospital in Israel and in all Lithuania. The Israeli data include 30526 hospital deaths, two groups of fatal suicides (2359, 2763), and 15435 suicidal attempts for two periods of 108 and 236 consecutive months.(More)
