Day of Week Analysis of Myocardial Infarctions Using ESSENCE-FL Emergency Department Data

Description: 

Syndromic surveillance ED data has historically shown the highest number of visits on Mondays, with decreasing volumes throughout the week. Previous studies have shown that increased negative health outcomes have occurred on Mondays. A study in the European Journal of Epidemiology provided evidence that suggests a higher incidence of cardiovascular events on Mondays compared to other days of the week.

Objective

To investigate the day of week effect on myocardial infarctions (MI) in the age group of 18 – 64 years using ESSENCE-FL emergency department (ED) data.
