[Weather change--a cause of myocardial infarction. Barometric pressure over the Arctic region affects the number of sudden cardiac death cases].

Abstract

Previous studies have reached different conclusions as to whether geomagnetic activity, or weather and weather changes are related to the risk of having or dying from an acute myocardial infarction (AMI). We linked the Northern Sweden MONICA AMI registry to databases on temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity, the Arctic Oscillation (AO), and… (More)
