Objectives The purpose of this study was to investigate whether psychosocial stress defined as high strain based on the job demand–control model increases risk for atrial fibrillation. Methods The present study comprised 6035 men born between 1915 and 1925 and free from previous coronary heart disease, atrial fibrillation and stroke at baseline (1974–1977). Work-related psychosocial stress was measured using a job-exposure matrix for the job demand–control model based on occupation at baseline… Expand
The Association between Job Strain and Atrial Fibrillation: Results from the Swedish WOLF Study
TLDR
Support is provided to the hypothesis that work-related stress defined as job strain is linked to an increased risk of AF by pointing towards a dose-response relationship when taking accumulated exposure to job strain over time into account. Expand
Job strain and atrial fibrillation – Results from the Swedish Longitudinal Occupational Survey of Health and meta-analysis of three studies
TLDR
The meta-analysis of the present and two previously published studies showed a consistent pattern, with job strain being associated with increased risk of atrial fibrillation in all three studies. Expand
Psychological stress and risk of incident atrial fibrillation in men and women with known atrial fibrillation genetic risk scores
TLDR
AF-GRS was significantly associated with incident AF for both genders, and stress did not interact significantly with genetic susceptibility to AF in men or women. Expand
Longitudinal study of occupational noise exposure and joint effects with job strain and risk for coronary heart disease and stroke in Swedish men
TLDR
Investigating whether occupational noise increased the risk for coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke and to elucidate interactions with stressful working conditions in a cohort of Swedish men found exposure to occupational noise was associated with an increased risk for CHD and the risk further increased among those with concomitant exposure to high strain.

Atrial fibrillation: An additional cardiovascular detrimental effect of stress at work?
TLDR
This issue of the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, Eleonore Fransson and colleagues, using a large Swedish longitudinal cohort, find ‘an almost 50% increased risk of atrial fibrillation’ again when high versus non-high job strain subjects are compared. Expand
Occupational physical activity is associated with risk of atrial fibrillation in both men and women: a population-based cohort study.
TLDR
Findings suggest that high load of OPA previous in life may play a role in increasing the risk of atrial fibrillation in both men and women. Expand
Socioeconomic position and risk of atrial fibrillation: a nationwide Danish cohort study
TLDR
Higher level of education and income was associated with a lower risk of being diagnosed with AF in young individuals but the association decreased with increasing age and was almost absent for the oldest age cohort. Expand
Long working hours as a risk factor for atrial fibrillation: a multi-cohort study
TLDR
Individuals who worked long hours were more likely to develop atrial fibrillation than those working standard hours and adjustment for potential confounding factors had little impact on this association. Expand
Death of a child and the risk of atrial fibrillation: a nationwide cohort study in Sweden
TLDR
The finding that an increased risk was observed also after loss of a child due to unnatural deaths suggests that stress-related mechanisms may also be implicated in the development of AF. Expand
Occupational physical activity, but not leisure-time physical activity increases the risk of atrial fibrillation: The Copenhagen City Heart Study
TLDR
High and very high OPA were associated with a significantly increased risk of incident AF, and LTPA was not associated with risk of event AF. Expand

A longitudinal general population-based study of job strain and risk for coronary heart disease and stroke in Swedish men
TLDR
Exposure to occupational psychosocial stress defined as job strain or low control increased the risk for CHD, especially among smokers and blue-collar workers, and there was no increased risk for stroke in any of the JDC categories. Expand
Long-term psychosocial work environment and cardiovascular mortality among Swedish men.
TLDR
Results indicate that long-term exposure to low work control is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease mortality. Expand
Job strain as a risk factor for coronary heart disease: a collaborative meta-analysis of individual participant data
TLDR
The findings suggest that prevention of workplace stress might decrease disease incidence; however, this strategy would have a much smaller effect than would tackling of standard risk factors, such as smoking. Expand
Anger and Hostility Predict the Development of Atrial Fibrillation in Men in the Framingham Offspring Study
TLDR
This is the first study to examine and demonstrate a predictive relation between measures of anger and hostility to the development of atrial fibrillation in men and shows that measures of Anger and hostility may be more productive avenues for research in studying the risk of arrhythmias and total mortality in men. Expand
Associations of job strain and lifestyle risk factors with risk of coronary artery disease: a meta-analysis of individual participant data
TLDR
The risk of coronary artery disease was highest among participants who reportedJob strain and an unhealthy lifestyle; those with job strain and a healthy lifestyle had half the rate of disease. Expand
Big men and atrial fibrillation: effects of body size and weight gain on risk of atrial fibrillation in men.
TLDR
Large body size in youth, in an era when obesity was rare, as well as weight gain from age 20 to midlife, were both independently related to the development of AF, suggesting a substantial increase in the incidence of AF is likely. Expand
Physical activity, height, and left atrial size are independent risk factors for lone atrial fibrillation in middle-aged healthy individuals.

Risk of arrhythmias in 52 755 long-distance cross-country skiers: a cohort study.
TLDR
Among male participants of a 90 km cross-country skiing event, a faster finishing time and a high number of completed races were associated with higher risk of arrhythmia, mainly driven by a higher incidence of AF and bradyarrhythmias. Expand
Lifetime Risk for Development of Atrial Fibrillation: The Framingham Heart Study
TLDR
Lifetime risks for development of AF are 1 in 4 for men and women 40 years of age and older, even in the absence of antecedent congestive heart failure or myocardial infarction, and substantial lifetime risks underscore the major public health burden posed by AF. Expand
Systematic review of prospective cohort studies of psychosocial factors in the etiology and prognosis of coronary heart disease.
TLDR
There was evidence for an association between depression, social support and psychosocial work characteristics and CHD aetiology and prognosis and Evidence for an effect of anxiety or type A behavior was less consistent. Expand
