UNLABELLED The goal of this study was to determine whether differences exist in the frequency of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and stroke (cerebrovascular accident) on days of different geomagnetic activity levels. Geomagnetic activity was divided into four levels: quiet (I degree), unsettled (II degree), active (III degree), and stormy (IV degree). Measurements were made according to the six highest hourly geomagnetic parameters, in nanotesla units, over 24 hours. The study period covered… CONTINUE READING
