A substantial body of research has demonstrated the relationships between cardiac arrhythmias and geomagnetic activity. In this work, the idea is centered on finding the relationship between the local magnetic field (LMF) and acute myocardial infarction (AMI). It is hypothesized and demonstrated via a series of statistical analyses that the relationship between the LMF and AMI is maintained over long-term observation windows. The data are collected from the two hospitals and one public institute of health in Lithuania from 2014 till 2019. The data are categorized into (1) daily average of the Schumann resonance for the local magnetic field measured by the Lithuanian magnetometer, which is used as the input variable; and (2) the total number of patients hospitalized in Lithuania per day with the diagnosis of AMI (the output variable). The data are classified both weekly as well as by gender. Following the data categorization and classification, the data were subjected to rigorous statistical analysis to determine the relationship between the input and output variables. This paper shows that only the beta and gamma (S-beta, S-gamma) frequency ranges of the Schumann resonances contribute to maintaining the long-term relationship between the LMF and AMI.
