BACKGROUND Acute myocardial infarction is triggered by various factors, such as physical exertion, stressful events, heavy meals, or increases in air pollution. However, the importance and relevance of each trigger are uncertain. We compared triggers of myocardial infarction at an individual and population level. METHODS We searched PubMed and the Web of Science citation databases to identify studies of triggers of non-fatal myocardial infarction to calculate population attributable fractions… Expand
Triggers of MI for the individual and in the community
TLDR
A meta-regression analysis of 36 studies on 13 MI triggers addresses the population burden of air pollution and skillfully shows how the concepts of individual versus population risks apply to MI triggers. Expand
Triggers of myocardial infarction
TLDR
Generation of information on air pollution exposure by monitoring of a metric such as biological oxidative damage should start to fill in the missing links in the understanding of the relation between particulate matter and disease as it relates to public health. Expand
Acute triggers of myocardial infarction: A case-crossover study☆
TLDR
It seems that given the importance of the triggers in the incidence of AMI, planning is necessary to train vulnerable individuals to reduce exposure to triggers. Expand
Environmental triggers of acute myocardial infarction: results of a nationwide multiple-factorial population study
Objective The objective of this study was to study the independent environmental triggers of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in a multifactorial environmental population model. Methods andExpand
Triggers and Timing of Acute Coronary Syndromes.
TLDR
Data from the National Israel Survey of Acute Coronary Syndromes, which was conducted in 2004, showed that heavy physical exertion as a trigger was associated with reduced in-hospital mortality and 1-year mortality, while emotional stress as atrigger did not influence in- hospital or 1- year mortality. Expand
Triggering of acute myocardial infarction by different means of transportation
TLDR
It is suggested that transient exposure to traffic regardless of the means of transportation may increase the risk of acute myocardial infarction transiently. Expand
Triggers of acute myocardial infarction: a neglected piece of the puzzle
TLDR
A picture of the most reliable evidence regarding the triggering of myocardial infarction is presented and contributes to further investigation in the field. Expand
Cannabis smoking and myocardial infarction
TLDR
Cannabis as a trigger for myocardial infarction has a population attributable fraction (PAF) of 0.8% even though it is the most widely used illicit drug, but objective evidence restricts the triggering period to the first 2 h after cannabis smoking. Expand
Effects of ambient temperature on myocardial infarction: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Cold exposure, heat exposure, and exposure to heat waves were associated with an increased risk of myocardial infarction and an increase in latitude was associated with a decreased risk of MI hospitalization due to cold exposure. Expand
Effect of exposure to PM2.5 on blood pressure: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Exposure to PM2.5 had a statistically significant impact on BP and the magnitude of this effect may have substantially clinical implication, according to this meta-analysis. Expand

Transient Exposure to Coffee as a Trigger of a First Nonfatal Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
The findings indicate that coffee intake may trigger myocardial infarction, and the association is particularly strong among people with light/occasional intake of coffee, with sedentary lifestyle, or with 3 or more risk factors for coronary heart disease. Expand
Physical exertion as a trigger of acute myocardial infarction. Triggers and Mechanisms of Myocardial Infarction Study Group.
TLDR
A period of strenuous physical activity is associated with a temporary increase in the risk of having a myocardial infarction, particularly among patients who exercise infrequently, and these findings should aid in the identification of the triggering mechanisms and improve prevention of this common and serious disorder. Expand
Does heavy physical exertion trigger myocardial infarction? A case-crossover analysis nested in a population-based case-referent study.
TLDR
A case-crossover analysis within a population-based case-referent study in Stockholm County, Sweden resulted in a relative risk close to unity, as expected, and the trigger effect was modified by socioeconomic status. Expand
Triggering Myocardial Infarction by Marijuana
TLDR
Comparing the reported use of marijuana in the hour preceding symptoms of myocardial infarction onset to its expected frequency may provide insight into the triggering of my Cardiac Infarction by this and other, more common stressors. Expand
Triggers of nonfatal myocardial infarction in Costa Rica: heavy physical exertion, sexual activity, and infection.
TLDR
The results confirm previous studies in developed countries showing that heavy physical exertion and sexual activity are potential triggers for MI, and their effect is modified by physical fitness and underlying cardiovascular risk. Expand
Intensity of physical exertion and triggering of myocardial infarction: a case-crossover study.
TLDR
This study confirms previous results and shows a graded exposure-response relationship between physical exertion intensity and triggering of AMI onset, which may have implications for behavioural guidance of people at risk of AMi. Expand
Triggering of myocardial infarction by cocaine.
TLDR
Cocaine use is associated with a large abrupt and transient increase in the risk of acute myocardial infarction in patients who are otherwise at relatively low risk, and this finding suggests that studying the pathophysiological changes produced by cocaine may provide insights into the mechanisms by which myocardials is triggered by other stressors. Expand
Triggering myocardial infarction by sexual activity. Low absolute risk and prevention by regular physical exertion. Determinants of Myocardial Infarction Onset Study Investigators.
TLDR
Sexual activity can trigger the onset of myocardial infarction, the relative risk is low, and the absolute risk increase caused by sexual activity also is extremely low (1 chance in a million for a healthy individual). Expand
Increased Particulate Air Pollution and the Triggering of Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
Elevated concentrations of fine particles in the air may transiently elevate the risk of MIs within a few hours and 1 day after exposure, suggesting a potentially preventable trigger of MI. Expand
Cardiovascular effect of bans on smoking in public places: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Smoking bans in public places and workplaces are significantly associated with a reduction in AMI incidence, particularly if enforced over several years. Expand
