AbstractSerum electrolytes are considered one of the important markers for cardiovascular risk. Electrolyte abnormalities have been demonstrated to have an impact on the risk for Cardiovascular outcomes with onset and time of administration .Electrolyte balance has been regarded as an important factor to cardiovascular stability. Forty five events of myocardial infarction were collected from intensive care unite in AL-Husaini Hospital , they are classified into three age groups, A (30-45) , B (45-60), C(above 60). The aim of the present study is finding the influence of age & sex including the above groups on the levels of serum calcium , phosphorus , potassium and sodium within the maximum normal ranges in those patients, the study discussed the single effect of sex on that levels , results showed there were no any significant difference for sex on them (p>0.05) , and for the single age effect , there were significant differences (p≤0.01), while for calcium and potassium in the third age group (above 60) for both sexes comparing to the other younger age groups . Mainly, the study included the duple effect for age with sex on the studied parameters , and the results showed that there were no significant differences for serum sodium and phosphorus among all age groups (p>0.05) , but there were significant differences (p≤0.05) for calcium levels by the same magnitude in both sexes in the oldest age group(above 60 ) comparing to the younger age group (30-45)..Significant differences had been seen also (p≤0.05) for high normal levels for serum potassium in females with the oldest age group (above 60) comparing with the other age groups including the present study.
