Objective: To determine the frequency of arrhythmias in patients admitted with Acute Myocardial Infarction.
Study Design: Observational study
Place and Duration of Study: This study was conducted at the Department of Cardiology, LUH Hyderabad from January 2015 to December 2016.
Materials and Methods: Patients with Acute MI, both genders were selected for the study.
