Weather and acute cardiovascular attacks: statistical analysis and results

Abstract

This study addresses the following question: to what extent could the onset of myocardial infarctions or cerebrovascular attacks be accounted for by short-term meteorological or environmental changes. The results from the Paris area are compared with results from Nancy (France), West Germany, and Japan. The authors conclude that weather change is one among other factors in the onset of myocardial infarction or of a cerebrovascular accident, but that the percentage of clinical cases really dependent on this atmospheric factor probably does not exceed ten percent of the cases. Far from being the only triggering effect, rapid fluctuations of the atmospheric situation have a marginal effect and are only an additional factor of risk in certain cases.
