AIMS: To compare major determinants of myocardial oxygen demand (heart rate, blood pressure and rate pressure product) in patients with and without diabetes admitted with acute coronary syndromes. METHODS: A cross-sectional study of the relation between diabetes and haemodynamic indices of myocardial oxygen demand in 2542 patients with acute coronary syndromes, of whom 1041 (41.0%) had acute myocardial infarction and 1501 (59.0%) unstable angina. RESULTS: Of the 2542 patients, 701 (27.6%) had diabetes. Major haemodynamic determinants of myocardial oxygen demand were higher in patients with than without diabetes: heart rate 80.0 +/- 20.4 vs. 75.2 +/- 19.2 beats/minute (P < 0.0001); systolic blood pressure 147.3 +/- 30.3 vs. 143.2 +/- 28.5 mmHg (P = 0.002); rate-pressure product 11533 +/- 4198 vs. 10541 +/- 3689 beats/minute x mmHg (P < 0.0001). Multiple regression analysis confirmed diabetes as a significant determinant of presenting heart rate [multiplicative coefficient (MC) 1.05; 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.03-1.07; P < 0.0001], rate pressure product (MC 1.09; CI 1.05-1.12; P < 0.0001) and systolic blood pressure, which was estimated to be 3.9 mmHg higher than in patients without diabetes (P=0.003). These effects of diabetes were independent of a range of baseline variables including acute left ventricular failure and mode of presentation (unstable angina or myocardial infarction). CONCLUSIONS: In acute coronary syndromes, heart rate and other determinants of myocardial oxygen demand are higher in patients with than without diabetes, providing a potential contributory mechanism of exaggerated regional ischaemia in this high-risk group.
