Evaluation of Routine hematological parameter and Red Cell Distribution Width (RDW) in Myocardial Infarction patients admitted at Dhiraj Hospital
Keywords:Myocardial Infarction, Red cell width distribution, Total Leucocyte count (TLC)
Background: - An increased systemic and local inflammation in vascular rupture plays a key role in the
pathophysiology mechanism of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Routine complete blood count (CBC) is
one of the most common and conventional blood test that physicians test cycle.
Objective: To study the level of routine hematological parameters and red cell distribution width in
Methodology: - A cross sectional type of study carried out in the department of biochemistry, Smt. B.K.
Shah Medical Institute & Research center, Sumandeep Vidyapeeth Vadodara Gujarat. A total 100 myocardial
infarction patients with age group of 25-70 of either gender were collected from Dhiraj General Hospital.
Pathological parameter were analyzed by BACKMAN COULTER SYSMEX Kx-21N.
Results: - In the age wise distribution of MI patients, we found more number in 58 to 68 age group. The
mean levels of pathological parameter were observed with in reference range. In the observation of age wise
pathological parameter we found that there increases mean levels of leucocyte count and the mean level of
RDW (18.50±1.80) is increased in 58-68 age group.
Conclusion: - RDW is one of the predictive biomarkers for diagnosis of myocardial infarction with cardiac
markers especially cardiac troponin I (cTn-I). Platelet levels can be monitored in MI patients in early phase
to find out the status of clot.
