According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death and disability in countries around the world, with ST segment elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI) leading the way. Despite advances such as the widespread introduction of many effective drugs, angioplasty and surgical treatments into clinical practice, CVD kills 17.3 million people annually, accounting for 30% of all deaths worldwide. This figure is projected to increase to 23.6 million by 2030. In the world, including in Uzbekistan, over the past two decades there has been an increase in morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular pathology.

Objective: Acute myocardial infarction is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Electrolyte imbalance among patients with acute myocardial infarction is not uncommon. The aim of the present study is to assess the status of serum sodium and potassium and plasma atrial natriuretic peptide level among patients with acute myocardial infarction complicated with cardiac arrhythmia.
Design: A case control study.
Setting: Ibn-Sena hospital/ Mosul-Iraq.
Participants: the study included 92 patients with acute myocardial infarction, divided into 2 group; Group I, included 44 patients with uncomplicated acute myocardial infarction; group II, included 48 AMI patients complicated with cardiac arrhythmia. The study also included 50 apparently healthy volunteers as a control group.
Methods: Plasma level of atrial natriuretic peptide, serum concentration of sodium, potassium were measured.
Results: The results of the study showed a significantly low serum sodium and potassium concentration in patients with AMI (p< 0.0001 and p<0.0001) in comparison with control group. The means of plasma level of atrial natriuretic peptide was significantly higher in patient with acute myocardial infarction in comparison with control group (p< 0.0001), atrial natriuretic peptide level was also higher in patient with complicated acute myocardial infarction in comparison with uncomplicated group (p< 0.0001). A significant negative correlation was observed between plasma atrial natriuretic peptide and serum sodium concentration in patients with uncomplicated acute myocardial infarction (r =-0.825, p<0.0001) and complicated acute myocardial infarction (r =-0.884, p<0.0001). Conclusion: In acute myocardial infarction, electrolytes imbalance is a common fining and usually associated with a variety of cardiac arrhythmia, plasma level of atrial natriuretic peptide significantly increased in patients with acute myocardial infarction and negatively correlated with serum sodium concentration.

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.
