Screening for risk of cardiovascular disease among officer grade bank employees of Gulbarga city

Vinod R. K., Pastapur M., Suresh K. P..

Abstract
Context: The risk of cardiovascular disease was assessed among officer grade bank employees of Gulbarga
city, as they face a large of amount of work related stress. Aims: (1) To assess the risk of cardiovascular
disease among the study group. (2) To propose a similar population based heart disease screening strategy
for other groups. Settings and Design: Out of the 242 officers in 26 banks in Gulbarga city (nationalized
and private), 59 officers were willing to be a part of the study. This population was initially screened by
a self-assessment scale, consisting of 10 questions relating to past history, family history, and lifestyle
practices. Scoring system was used for the analysis. Materials and Methods: The initial part of this
cross-sectional study was conducted during April 2006. Forty nine officers who scored ≥3 were recruited
for preliminary assessment, which consists of physical examination, Electrocardiogram (ECG) and some
invasive investigations (fasting blood sugar and cholesterol). Those found at further risk, were recruited for
detailed assessment. 15 officers who qualified were screened for specific cardiac markers using advanced
investigations Lipoprotein (Lp) a, homocysteine, C reactive protein (CRP), lipid profile measurements,
Treadmill test (TMT) / Echocardiogram (ECHO), and Glucose tolerance test (GTT). All the five officers
who were found at the highest level of risk were referred to the tertiary health care centre. Statistical
Analysis: Microsoft excel was used to compute the frequencies and percentages. Results: Among the
59 employees examined in the study, 49 were found to be at risk for cardiovascular diseases (comprising
~83% of the assessed population) and thus qualified to the second round of assessment. Only 31 officers
underwent the second round of assessment, out of whom 15 (48.4%) were found to be at higher risk and
thus were subjected to the third round. Only five officers (of the 15) underwent the third round of assessment
and all were found to be utmost at risk for CVDs and were duly referred to a tertiary health care centre.
Conclusions: The study shows the application of a risk assessment model, towards predicting the risk for
cardiovascular diseases among a group ofhigh risk population. Similar models could be used for the risk
assessment of other population groups.

Key words: Blood investigations, cardiovascular disease, professional stress, risk assessment
