Background Climate change is a significant threat to public health. Research on medical effects of climate may help to increase the success of the cardiovascular prevention. We aimed to understand and to provide evidence on relationship of several atmospherical parameters and hypertension. Methods We conducted a 2670 population-based retrospective study of acut cardiovascular (ACV) diseases at Semmelweis University Heart and Vascular Center in 2012-2013, using daily atmospherical parameters data provided by the National Meteorology Service. Our research examined atmospherical parameters effects on hypertensive and non-hypertensive ACV patients. Results Our study supports the hypothesis of a robust association between hypertension and several atmospherical parameters. Hypertensive ACV patients showed a strong seasonal variation with the highest incidence rate in winter months. A significant association was found between the temperature, the atmospherical pressure and the incidence of hypertensive patients. We also observed a significant association of hypertension with front movements. Our results prove that ACV risk is higher in patients with hypertension during days with negative atmospherical condition. Conclusion In light of our study the magnitude of atmospherical parameters cardiovascular risk effects depend on hypertension factor. These results may help in the understanding of the hypertensive population's sensitivity to different atmospherical factors. The consequences of our study should be taken into account in future cardiovascular preventive medicine planning.
