The incidence of acute myocardial infarction was significantly increased for the first 3 weekdays after the transition to daylight saving time in the spring. In contrast, in the autumn, only the first weekday was affected significantly. 
Incidence of myocardial infarction with shifts to and from daylight savings time.
TLDR
The data suggest that shifts to and from DST might transiently affect the incidence and type of acute cardiac events, albeit modestly. Expand
Daylight saving time and the incidence of thrombolysis to treat acute ischemic stroke.
TLDR
The findings reflect that psychosocial factors, such as the approach of the last day of the month override the intrinsic effect of disturbances of the circadian rhythm on stroke incidence. Expand
Daylight savings time and myocardial infarction
TLDR
In the week following the seasonal time change, DST impacts the timing of presentations for AMI but does not influence the overall incidence of this disease. Expand
Daylight Saving Time and incidence of myocardial infarction: Evidence from a regression discontinuity design
TLDR
This work exploits Daylight Saving Time shift using non-parametric regression discontinuity techniques to provide indisputable evidence that this abrupt disturbance does affect incidence of acute myocardial infarction. Expand
Daylight saving time transitions and acute myocardial infarction
TLDR
The present report supports the possibility that DST transitions represent additional chronobiological feature of AMI, and that risk of an onset varies according to sex, employment status, and the taking of cardiovascular medication. Expand
Daylight saving time does not seem to be associated with number of percutaneous coronary interventions for acute myocardial infarction in the Netherlands
TLDR
There was no correlation between the transition to or from DST and a change in the incidence rate of PCI for acute MI, and gender-specific results were comparable. Expand
Daylight saving time shifts and incidence of acute myocardial infarction--Swedish Register of Information and Knowledge About Swedish Heart Intensive Care Admissions (RIKS-HIA).
TLDR
The data suggest that even modest sleep deprivation and disturbances in the sleep-wake cycle might increase the risk of acute myocardial infarction across the population. Expand
Daylight saving time and myocardial infarction: should we be worried? A review of the evidence.
TLDR
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. Expand
Changes in atrial fibrillation admissions following daylight saving time transitions.
TLDR
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. Expand
Relationship Between Myocardial Ischemia/Reperfusion and Time of Day
TLDR
Future pharmacological strategies for myocardial infarction prevention and/or minimizing reperfusion injury should consider time-of-day-dependent rhythms in both extrinsic and intrinsic factors. Expand

TLDR
Transition to daylight saving time appears to compromise the process of sleep by decreasing both sleep duration and sleep efficiency. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that sleep loss may be one of the ways that inflammatory processes are activated and contribute to the association of sleep complaints, short sleep duration, and cardiovascular morbidity observed in epidemiologic surveys. Expand
