PMID:  11205938     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A patient with dextrocardia who suffered his first myocardial infarction after approximately 26 hours of a diagnostic sleep deprivation protocol is described. The infarction started about 3 hours after a significant improvement in mood, which persisted during and after infarction. Total sleep deprivation may be an acute risk factor for myocardial infarction.
