This book, which covers Visions and hallucinations, explains what causes them and summarises how many hallucinations have been caused by each event or activity. It also provides specific help with questions people have asked us, such as ‘Is my medication giving me hallucinations?’.

Correlation between strokes and violent weather



Type of Spiritual Experience



Not a spiritual experience but important background information, not violent weather exactly, but weather!

A description of the experience

Int J Biometeorol. 2006 May;50(5):305-11. Epub 2005 Dec 20. Influence of weather on emergency transport events coded as stroke: population-based study in Japan. Ohshige K, Hori Y, Tochikubo O, Sugiyama M. Department of Public Health, Yokohama City University School of Medicine, 3-9 Fukuura, Kanazawa-ku, 236-0004, Yokohama, Japan. kenoh@med.yokohama-cu.ac.jp

Studying the relation between incidence of stroke and weather is difficult because it requires large-scale community-based data collection.

Despite the lack of strong evidence that weather conditions influence stroke incidence, many clinicians feel that meteorological conditions influence the onset of stroke.

This study examined whether emergency events related to stroke are influenced by meteorological factors and was based on computerized records of emergency medical transport services in a Japanese city during the period January 1992-December 2003.

A total of 53,585 patients transported for an event coded as stroke were analyzed in relation to meteorological factors such as temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure. Poisson regression analysis was applied to clarify the influence of daily meteorological conditions on the daily incidence of emergency transport due to events coded as stroke. Ordinary least squares regression analysis was used to evaluate the influence of weather, defined as the combination of meteorological parameters, on the occurrence of emergency transport due to events coded as stroke.

Daily mean ambient temperature and daily mean relative humidity showed a statistically significant negative effect on the incidence of the emergency transport events for both men and women (P<0.001).

Daily mean barometric pressure was not significantly related to these events.

The occurrence of a holiday was negatively related to the incidence (P<0.001).

Dry weather and cool weather were likely to shift the circadian curve of the incidence upward.

Thus, occurrence of emergency transport due to events coded as stroke is likely to be associated with weather conditions.
