Background: Snake bite is a well-known occupational hazard amongst farmers, plantation workers,
and other outdoor workers and results in much morbidity and mortality throughout the world.
This occupational hazard is no more an issue restricted to a particular part of the world; it has
become a global issue.
Aim: To study the clinical profile and outcome of patients of snake bite admitted JA group of
hospital Gwalior (GRMC Gwalior)
Method: This study was conducted in JA group of hospital Gwalior (GRMC Gwalior) in 75 patients
admitted with history of definite snake bite in ICU, Department of Medicine, G.R. Medical College,
Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, India over a period of one and a half year from July 2019 to December
2021. All the patients were subjected to history taking, complete physical examination and relevant
blood investigations including compete blood count and renal function test with appropriate
inclusion and exclusion criteria
Results: Most of the cases of snake bite were from age group 21-30 years (28%) and second most
common age group was 41-50 years (24%). Ptosis (74.6%) was found to be most common symptom
followed by ophthalmoplegia (62.6%) in snake bite patients.Almost all (94.6%) patients of snake
bite recovered and only 4 (5.4%) died in hospital due to cardiac arrest while on ventilator.
Conclusion: Snakebite is most often an occupational, domestic or environmental hazard affecting
mostly males and from age group 21-30 years. Mostly patients appeared with
neurotoxicity.Majority of patients of snake bite recovered if they received right treatment

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is one of the common diseases in developing countries.(Sathisha et al., 2011)It is generally known as a heart attack, which occurs when there israpid blockage in flow of blood in one or more of Coronary arteries and decreases the supply of blood to heart muscle, leading to necrosis in which enormous death of cells andpermanent damage occur. If blockage is severe, then heart faces cardiac halt. This is very common because ofblockage occur in coronary artery following splitting of atherosclerotic plaque in which uneven collection of lipids,more commonly cholesterol and fatty acid as well as WBC’s specifically macrophagesoccur in walls of artery.AMI is one of an exampleof coronary artery disease, that results into greater than 2.4 million expiries in USA, greater than 4 million expiries in Europe and northern Asia,(Nichols, Townsend, Scarborough, & Rayner, 2014) as well as greater than one third of deaths in advanced countries per year. In this review article, the pathophysiology of acute myocardial infarction along with some uses of drugs is discussed.
