Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Coronary risk profile screening was performed in 1422 volunteer subjects during National Heart Week 1986. A great proportion (55%) of this study group had blood cholesterol above 200 mg/dl; 10% of the subjects were smokers. This study documents the coronary risk profile of 1422 subjects whose biodata provide a baseline for future follow up of the possible changes in any of the various risk factors. This study identifies modifiable risk factors, high blood cholesterol and smoking which should be the target of public education in the efforts to reduce coronary diseases in Singapore.
