Title: “Seasonal and diurnal variations in cardiovascular risk factors and cardiovascular disease in older British men”
Speaker: Claudio Sartini
Date & Time: Thursday 26th Nov 12:30 - 14:00
Venue: Seminar room 1, PCPH
Cardiovascular disease (CVD), the leading cause of death in the UK, exhibits a marked season variation; mortality risks are higher in the winter than in the summer. CVD mortality also exhibits a diurnal variation; previous studies suggest the highest number of events occur during early and late morning.
Some CVD risk factors have also shown both seasonal and diurnal variation, including established and novel cardiovascular risk factors (e.g. blood pressure, inflammatory and haemostatic markers) and health behaviours (e.g. physical activity).
However, the potential contribution of the variations in these risk factors to the variation in CVD risk has not been widely investigated. The overall aim of this PhD is to investigate the independent contribution of meteorological factors, established and novel CVD risk factors, and physical activity levels to CVD risk in the British Regional Heart Study (BRHS).
This presentation will introduce the research area of this PhD and describe the methods used. Findings investigating the diurnal and seasonal variation in physical activity levels will then be presented.
Finally the plans for the remainder of this PhD will be discussed.
The department of Primary Care and Population Health at University College London has great pleasure in hosting the 2016 London and South East regional conference.
Madingley Hall has been the venue for this meeting for more than 20 years and provides a perfect location for you to meet your colleagues from London, Cambridge, East Anglia and Kent.
The theme for this year's conference is Innovation in a sea of change - "will academic primary care sink or swim?"
The conference will be held on 28th & 29th January 2016.
Registration is now open
