ntroduction: Coronary heart diseases is a major disease causing significant mortality and long term complications in patients. Objectives of the study: The main objective of the study is to analyse the average ischemia time in NonST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction in comparison of ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction among local population of Pakistan. Material and methods: This comparative study was conducted in Shiekh Zayed Medical College, Rahim Yar Khan during August 2019 to January 2020. The data was collected 100 patients of both genders. The data was divided into two groups. Results: The data was collected from 100 patients. The mean age of the patients was 51.3 ± 11.5 years in STEMI patients and 57.4 ± 9.4 in NSTEMI. 45 (45%) have diabetic history with STEMI and 55 (55%) with NSTEMI patients. 81 (81%) have smoking history and 17 (17%) have family history of CVD with STEMI. All the data is represented in table 1. Conclusion: It is concluded that there is no difference among the heart rate variability indices in Ischemic heart disease, MI, age group and gender.
