Correlation of Hemoglobin & C-Reactive Protein Levels with In-hospital Outcome of Patient with Acute Coronary Syndrome
Background: Haemoglobina and CRP level may be related with the in-hospital outcome of acute coronary syndrome patients.
Objective: The purpose of the present study was to correlate haemoglobin and CRP level with in-hospital outcome of patient with acute coronary syndrome.
Methodology: This cross-sectional study was conducted in the Department of Cardiology at Mymensingh Medical College, Mymensingh, Bangladesh from December 2010 to November 2011 for a period of two (02) years. Patients of ACS who were presented within 12 hours of chest pain were included as study population. Study population were categorized in four groups according to the level of hemoglobin and C-reactive protein. Blood sample was collected for baseline laboratory investigations.
Result: The mean age of the population was 52.18±8.88 years. Arrhythmia was more common in Group 1 which was 5(71.4%) cases and 6(46.2%) cases in VT and AF respectively. Arrhythmia was significantly correlated with age, sex, diabetes mellitus & CRP. Death was significantly correlated with age, diabetes mellitus, hypertension & CRP. Heart failure was significantly correlated with family history of IHD, CRP & Hemoglobin. Bleeding was only significantly correlated with CRP. No significant association was revealed between the types of arrhythmia and age, sex, smoking, diabetes, dyslipidaemia, family history of IHD and hypertension (P = 0.087). Only heart failure was strongly and significantly correlated with hemoglobin level (p=0.000). Bleeding (p=0.003), heart failure (p=0.022) and death (p=0.016) were significantly correlated with CRP level.
Conclusion: In conclusion there is a correlation of haemoglobin and CRP level with in-hospital outcome of patient with acute coronary syndrome.
