Physiological and environmental factors, myocardial infarction


Mycardial infarction is the commonest cause of death in many  parts of the world . Myocardial infarction is a damage in the heart muscles as a result of an imbalance between myocardial blood supply and demand . This study has been carried out in Al-Thawra Hospital in El-Beida for fifteen months. The aim was to investigate the effect of some factors such as age , sex , habit and some diseases on the incidences of myocardial infarction .The result indicate a significant effect of age , sex on the occurrence of the disease. It has been found that the frequency of myocardial infarction increases with diabetes mellitus , hypertension, cigarette smoking and socioeconomic level .
