CAD and stroke are the predominant causes and are responsible for >80% of CVD deaths. The Global
Burden of Disease study estimate of age-standardized CVD death rate of 272 per 100000 populations
in India is higher than the global average of 235 per 100000 populations. In India of particular concern
is its accelerated buildup, the early age of disease onset in the population and the high case fatality rate.
After getting approval from institutional ethics committee, study was carried out in all patients
fulfilling the inclusion and exclusion criteria during the study period. Patient diagnosed or known case
of CAD either from history, investigations were included in the study after obtaining written valid
informed consent. 2D Echo of patient diagnosed or known CAD was routinely done in our institution
mainly to know the ventricular function. The number of patients having DM was comparable in the two
groups (p value-0.644). The percentage of DM patients in group A and group B being 40% and 35%
respectively. The time taken for intubation in two groups was comparable, with the mean duration
being 19.5s in group A and 19.4s in group.
