According to new study, the beginning of the workweek has the highest risk of fatal heart attacks at any time. The study indicated that the chance of having a heart attack on a monday was 13% higher than anticipated. It was presented at the british Cardiovascular Society (BCS) conference in Manchester, UK.

The most serious type of heart attack, known as an ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), was analysed in data from 10,528 patients across the island of ireland between 2013 and 2018 by doctors at the Belfast health and Social Care Trust and the Royal college of Surgeons in ireland (7,112 in the Republic of ireland and 3,416 in Northern Ireland).

When a significant coronary artery is totally stopped, STEMI develops. The start of the work week was associated with an increase in STEMI heart attacks, with rates on monday being the greatest. Additionally, there were higher than anticipated STEMI rates on a Sunday. Scientists have not yet been able to pinpoint the exact cause of the "Blue Monday" phenomena.

An relationship with circadian rhythm, or the body's sleep or waking cycle, has been emphasised by prior research that show heart attacks are more likely to occur on Mondays. "We have discovered a significant statistical relationship between the beginning of the workweek and the occurrence of STEMI. Although it has been previously reported, this is still a mystery, according to Dr. Jack Laffan, a cardiologist who oversaw the study at the Belfast health and Social Care Trust.

Although the mechanism is probably multifaceted, he continued, "it is reasonable to assume a circadian element based on what we know from previous studies." To reduce cardiac damage from STEMI, immediate evaluation and treatment are necessary. Emergency angioplasty is typically used to reopen the blocked coronary artery.
