None The last several years have seen intense debate about the issue of transitioning between standard and daylight saving time. In the United States, the annual advance to daylight saving time in spring, and fall back to standard time in autumn, is required by law (although some exceptions are allowed under the statute). An abundance of accumulated evidence indicates that the acute transition from standard time to daylight saving time incurs significant public health and safety risks… 
Lingering Impacts on Sleep Following the Daylight Savings Time Transition
Background: The “spring forward” change to Daylight Savings Time (DST) has been epidemiologically linked with numerous health and safety risks in the days following the transition, but direct
Delaying school and office timings during Ramadhan: Boon or bane?
DST has been in debate for decades, and its cohort (Ramadan month sleep pattern) needs to be put in the same seat as other protocols that fall into this category.
Patient Safety–Related Incidents and Daylight Saving Time Transitions
The authors reviewed voluntarily reported SRIs that occurred 7 days prior and following spring and fall time changes at Mayo Clinic, a large healthcare organization including sites at multiple states that implement DST, to conclude that spring forward transition into daylight saving time may be associated with increased safety-related incidents (SRIs) in a healthcare setting and countermeasures should be considered to mitigate this risk.
Daylight savings time transitions and risk of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest:an interrupted time series analysis.
Both harmful and protective effects from DST transitions on the risk of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest are observed, and strategies to reduce this risk in vulnerable populations should be considered.
Highlights of the ERS Lung Science Conference and Sleep and Breathing Conference 2021 and the new ECMC members
Some of the most remarkable sessions of the @EuroRespSoc Lung Science Conference and the Sleep and Breathing Conference 2021 are provided and the new incoming members of the ECMC (@EarlyCareerERS) are presented.
Take 10: A Resident Well-Being Initiative and Burnout Mitigation Strategy.
It is hypothesized that brief bursts of well-being activities that are conducive to a resident schedule can mitigate burnout and "Take 10" is a low cost and low intensity initiative for individuals and programs to use to mitigate burnouts.


Daylight saving time and myocardial infarction: should we be worried? A review of the evidence.
The results support the presence of an association between DST and a modest increase of AMI occurrence, especially for the spring shift, and with no definite gender specific differences.
Changes in ischemic stroke occurrence following daylight saving time transitions.
DST transitions appear to be associated with an increase in IS hospitalizations during the first two days after transitions but not during the entire following week, which may be modulated by gender, age and malignant comorbidities.
A Chronobiological Evaluation of the Acute Effects of Daylight Saving Time on Traffic Accident Risk
This study evaluated the acute consequences of the DST transition on MVAs in a chronobiological context, quantifying DST, time of day, and time zone effects, and observed that spring DST significantly increased fatal MVA risk by 6%, which was more pronounced in the morning and in locations further west within a time zone.
Changes in atrial fibrillation admissions following daylight saving time transitions.
An increase in AF hospital admissions was found following the DST springtime transition, and this finding persisted only among women, adding to evidence of negative health effects associated with DST transitions and factors that contribute to AF episodes.
School start times and daylight saving time confuse California lawmakers
It is explained why a switch to permanent DST could negate any beneficial effects of delaying school start times and why similar debates on school start time and DST are happening throughout North America and Europe.
Social Jetlag, Chronotype, and Cardiometabolic Risk.
The findings suggest that a misalignment of sleep timing is associated with metabolic risk factors that predispose to diabetes and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.
Adverse Impact of Sleep Restriction and Circadian Misalignment on Autonomic Function in Healthy Young Adults
In conclusion, SR and CM both result in impaired autonomic function that could lead, under chronic conditions, to enhanced cardiovascular risk.
Social Jetlag and Obesity
The results demonstrate that living "against the clock" may be a factor contributing to the epidemic of obesity, and suggest that improving the correspondence between biological and social clocks will contribute to the management of obesity.
Transitions into and out of daylight saving time compromise sleep and the rest-activity cycles
Transitions out of and into daylight saving time enhanced night-time restlessness and thereby compromised the quality of sleep.
The Human Circadian Clock's Seasonal Adjustment Is Disrupted by Daylight Saving Time
The data indicate that the human circadian system does not adjust to DST and that its seasonal adaptation to the changing photoperiods is disrupted by the introduction of summer time, which may extend to other aspects of seasonal biology in humans.
