Abstract

Myocardial infarction is one of the most common reasons for hospitalizing patients in industrial countries. The arrhythmia arising from myocardial infarction is one of the most important causes of death among smokers and opium abusers. For this reason, the present study aims at comparing different kinds of post-myocardial infarction arrhythmias among smokers and opium abusers hospitalized in Imam Ali Hospital in Zahedan. The present study is a descriptive-analytical one conducted on 200 patients (100 smokers and 100 opium abusers) suffering from myocardial infarction and hospitalized in the CCU of Imam Ali Hospital in Zahedan in 2016. Convenience sampling was used to select the samples. The data were collected through using questionnaire and they were then analyzed by using SPSS version 18. Sinus tachycardia, atrial flutter, ventricular premature beats, ventricular tachycardia, and ventricular fibrillation of the smokers’ group were more than those of the opium abusers’ group were. Given the findings of the present study, patients with myocardial infarction with a smoking history are more likely to suffer from arrhythmia than opium abusers with myocardial infarction history. Thus, patients referring with myocardial infarction or diagnosed to suffer from myocardial infarction and their medical history indicates that they have a smoking history should be under surveillance by doctors or the nursing staff with respect to different kinds of arrhythmia especially ventricular arrhythmia. © 2017, Pharmainfo Publications.
