New Delhi, Jun 5 (PTI) Serious heart attacks are more likely to happen at the start of the working week than at any other time, according to a study.

The researchers at the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland analysed data of 10,528 patients across Ireland admitted to hospital between 2013 and 2018 with the most serious type of heart attack.

This is known as an ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and occurs when a major coronary artery is completely blocked.
