ABSTRACTBackground: The mechanism by which the orthostatic hypotension and cardiac autonomic neuropathy increase cardiovascular morbidity and mortality remain to be settled. Some studies found exercise intolerance in patients with cardiac autonomic neuropathy with a reduced response in heart rate and blood pressure and decreased cardiac output during exercise. An association between cardiac autonomic neuropathy and QT prolongation has been shown.Objective: To asses the role of the orthostatic hypotension in the development of the early cardiovascular complications in the patients of the coronary care unit.Patients and method: In this a prospective observational follow up study, (50) patients with ischemic heart diseases were included. Blood pressure was measured with the standard mercury sphygmomanometer, the measurement in supine position was taken after at least 15 minutes of rest and the measurement in standing position was taken at the third minutes of standing, the orthostatic hypotension is said to be present when there was a sustained drop in systolic (≥ 20 mmHg) or diastolic (≥ 10 mmHg) blood pressure at the third minute of standing up.Results: Out of twenty two patients with orthostatic hypotension fifteen patients developed cardiovascular complications and out of twenty eight patients without orthostatic hypotension five patients developed cardiovascular complications, this association is statistically significant Conclusion: Orthostatic hypotension can be used as a prognostic marker for the development of early adverse outcomes in patients with acute coronary syndrome, thus it can be useful tool to screen the high risk patients in the coronary care unit.

ABSTRACTBackground: long term complications of DM including atherosclerosis, neuropathy, nephropathy and diabetic foot are the major causes of morbidity and mortality in diabetic patients.Objective: To study the effects of the control and duration of diabetes on the development of long term complications in diabetic patients. Method: The long term diabetic complications (neuropathy, IHD, CVA, PVD and diabetic foot) were assessed in 80 diabetic patients of type 1 and type 2 who attended the diabetic clinic in AL-Sader teaching hospital over 10 months period.Results: There was significant relationship between the prevalence of long term complications and degree of diabetic control and duration of diabetes mellitusConclusion: The control and duration of diabetes mellitus are the major predictors of long term diabetic complications.
