LANDSBERGIS, Paul. Long work hours, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2004, vol.20, n.6, pp.1746-1748. ISSN 1678-4464. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2004000600035.
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.
