Colder Weather Could Increase the Risk of Heart Failure in Senior People
According to the study from Université Laval and Université de Sherbrooke in Quebec, Canada, dropping temperatures and changes in atmospheric pressure can lead to an increase in the risk of heart failure for elderly people.
The scientists believe that senior people with a higher chance of heart failure should avoid fog and low cloud in the winter months.
The team of researchers looked at 112,793 people, aged 65 years and above, with the diagnosis of heart failure in Quebec between 2001 and 2011.
Across an average of 635 days, the participants of the study were monitored, and readings for temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure and air pollutants were also measured. Having analyzed the received data, the scientists revealed a higher risk of hospitalization or death in the winter (October to April) compared to the summer (May to September).
