Abstract

Several studies revealed a relationship between the occurrence of acute life-threatening morbidities and both internal biological rhythms of the body, and some external factors such as the number of daylight hours, time of sunrise, sudden changes in the weather, temperature fluctuations, and changes in atmospheric pressure. The incidence of acute coronary syndromes exhibits a distinct seasonality, which is characterized by considerable geographical variation. Similarly, different weather factors influence the epidemiology of ischemic events in different climatic zones.
