CSI launched a latest research project on Epidemiological Assessment of the prevalence
of standard risk factors for cardiovascular atherosclerotic disease across West Bengal
News Desk, News Nation 360: Cardiological Society of India (CSI)has always conducted and encouraged research works in the field of cardiovascular diseases for the advancement of knowledge. In consonance with that tradition West Bengal chapter of CSI has also contributed to the field of research. In that endeavour, the latest research project on” Epidemiological Assessment of the prevalence of standard risk factors for cardiovascular atherosclerotic disease across West Bengal “ is being launched under the able Principal Investigator Dr Debabrata Roy. A survey will be done in different classes of people for this research across the West Bengal. The state has been divided into five
geographical regions for this purpose. These are Gangetic Bengal, Himalayan region, North Bengal Plain, Rarh Bangla and Mallabhum region. The main objective of this research project is to find out the prevalence of risk factors in different parts of West Bengal to frame scientific guidelines of combating and preventing the menace of escalating Coronary Artery Disease in West Bengal. Local data is very much important for latest treatment and research for any branch of Modern Medical Science. But in various fields, these are insufficient in our country. In this point of view, in the field of cardiology it is a great step to achieve the goal. Dr P. S. Banerjee, Dr P, K, Deb, Dr M. K. Das, Dr Monoranjan Mandal, Dr Debbrata Roy, Dr Bhabani Prasad Chatterjee & Dr Dilip Kumar has been meet the press along with many other interventional cardiologists of the city to discuss on this topics. The study would consist of identification of camp locations across the state of West Bengal. Participants will be recruited based on representative demographic sample selection following a door to door survey in the neighborhood of the camp locations. Participants’ age must be no less than 18 years and no more than 65. No more than one male and one female member of a family would be recruited. Each camp would have approximately 150 participants with a representative coverage of gender, age group, and economic status. Based on such prior information, we will construct the sample population needs, to estimate each prevalence percentage with a 95% credible interval and a 1% accuracy bound across the whole state. Variation of prevalence across regions, gender, and age-groups would be computed at 5% accuracy levels with a 95% credible environment.
