Abstract

Purpose: The objective is to determine the predictors of hyperkalaemia, severity of hyperkalaemia and to access the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases


Methodology: A cross sectional observational study was conducted on the predictors of hyperkalaemia in CVD patients, in a tertiary care teaching hospital for a period of 6 months.


Results: Among 105 patients, there were 83 males and 22 females, the age group from 41-60 year shows more CVDs and 61-80 years aged patients are more prone to hyperkalaemia and shows more prevalent when compared to other age groups. The major risk factors of hyperkalaemia were Drugs (30.23%), Disease (58.13%), and Drug interactions (11.62%).Among the cardiovascular diseases, Myocardial Infarction (38%) were the most common type of CVD, while in hyperkalaemia Ischemic Heart Disease (48.83%) were more prevalent. The severity of hyperkalaemia is measured as Mild (60.46%), Moderate (37.20%), and Severe (2.32%).


Conclusion: The present study was carried out in order to assess the predictors, prevalence and severity of hyperkalaemia in cardiovascular disease patients. Our study concluded that patients with cardiovascular disease can have an increased risk of hyperkalaemia.
