Dyselectrolytemia in Acute Myocardial Infarction: A Retrospective Study

EshaMati, Krishnamurthy.N, Ashakiran.S, Sumathi M E, Raghavendra Prasad1

Background: Myocardial infarction (MI) is a dreadful complication of cardiovascular disease causing increasing mortality worldwide. Sudden cardiac deaths occur worldwide at rates of around 3 million per year. Electrolyte imbalances after an episode of acute myocardial infarction are common. Clinical importance of these imbalances in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in the era of primary intervention has not been fully understood.

Objectives: To determine the pattern of dyselectrolytemia in post MI patients and to compare the electrolyte levels among MI and non-MI patients.
