Long work hours, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease.
Cad Saude Publica 2004 Nov/Dec; 20(6):1746-1748
Several studies of myocardial infarction and two studies of blood pressure have shown associations with long work hours (greater than 55-60 hours per week). However, the number of studies of long work hours with cardiovascular outcomes is limited, and further research is needed to better understand the mechanisms and moderating factors.
