Abstract (in english)
   Relationships between coronary disease and meteorology were documented in 10-year data as a 13% increase in event rates of all age groups with a 10° C decrease in temperature, a finding in keeping with the highest fatality from acute myocardial infarction (MI) on the coldest days reported from Helsinki in 1977 and other meteorological analyses in relation to MI. The effect of cold weather is also documented in the laboratory on days when ECG was monitored after ligation of the descending coronary artery in dogs: more sudden deaths occurred in November-February vs. July-August. Contradictory reports from subtropical climates claim that the seasons do not or do affect the frequency of acute MI. In cold cities, both high and low temperatures were associated with increased cardiovascular mortality.
