Abstract


Increasing incidence of AMI patients is a global phenomenon & India is not immune to it. The quality of life in this vulnerable subset of patients following one year after the index event is not studied in great detail in our part of the country. Our  study assessed this important parameter by using internationally accepted MacNew questionnaire, consisting of Emotional , Physical & Social domains. The overall QOL was perceived to be better among male patients & urban patients . Diabetes & hypertension  played important roles in affecting the overall QOL. There was  a trend towards gradual improvement with more passage of time from the first attack.
